Recipe — potato

Posted in culture, food by jrahman on September 6, 2012

This was cooked on the Eid day. 

– Cut a kilo medium sized potatos into two to four pieces (each piece should be about one square inch).  Microwave for a few minutes.

– Heat oil.  Throw in a few cinnamon sticks.  Once the fragrance is strong, add four coarsely chopped medium sized tomato.  Add salt and stir for couple of minutes. 

– Add two table spoon each of cumin powder and ginger paste, and some tumeric (as usual, how much depends on how strongly you feel about yellowish fingers). 

– After the gravy starts to form, throw in the potatoes, lower heat, and cook covered. 

This can be eaten with rice and daal, or luchi / paratha, or (as was done on the Eid day) pulao.

    Won’t it eat or look better if you use whole potatoes ( finger size or those small marbe sized ones) ? Remember aalu’r Dom in Bangladesh?
    And next time you put a recepue in ths blog, put a photo of the finished product.

      The marble sized red potatoes (particularly from North Bengal) would be ideal. But we can’t get them in my local supermarket!

    You should use the power of your blog to inspire us all to ditch the oil / frying and do the whole thing in the microwave. Water and lemon juice is a good texture substitute for oil.

    MOGHUL MICROWAVE is an interesting trove of suggestions
