Recipe for Pakistani Style Aloo Ka Salan/Tarkari

2 lbs potatoes (peeled & sliced round)

1/2 cup oil

1 large tomato (finely chopped)

3/4 tsp cumin seed

2 dried red chilies

1 pinch turmeric powder

1 tsp salt

1 tsp red chili powder

1 tsp coriander powder

1 1/4 tbsp mint leaves (roughly chopped)

1 green chili pepper

Preparation Method

Heat oil in a wok, then add the red chilies, stir them for 10 seconds and add cumin seeds. Stir fry them for 10 seconds & add potatoes. (Make sure that you have cumin seeds & potatoes ready before heating the oil & don’t let the cumin seeds stir fry more than 10 seconds or else they’ll burn & loose the aroma.)

Mix the potatoes well (at this point the potatoes might start to stick to the pan so be extra careful) Add tomatoes, salt, red chili powder, turmeric powder and coriander powder. Mix again. Cover & let them cook on medium low heat till the tomatoes get tenderized & the potatoes get almost 75% done.

Now add mint leaves & green chilies. Mix, cover & cook on low heat for another 15 minutes or till the oil separates & your Aloo Ka Salan gets done.

Enjoy with Hara Raita & Roti/Chapati.
