Simple Aloo Masala Fry

The highlight of this recipe is the masala coated potatoes. This secret spice (not really a secret now) sticks to the potatoes so well that you get a burst of flavours in every bite. It’s what potato-lovers’ dreams are made of.

  • 4 Teaspoons Ghee
  • 2 Teaspoons Turmeric
  • 2 Teaspoons Red Chilli Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Jeera
  • 2 Teaspoons Coriander Powder
  • Salt to Taste
  • Coriander Leaves (for garnish)
