Chatpata Achari Aloo

These I had eaten in a restaurant and tried them at home. They are so yummy and tasty. You can have them with roti or as a side dish.   The list of ingredients do look too much, but let that not deter you from trying this yummy Chatpata Achari Aloo...

9 Baby potatoes
A pinch Asafeotida
1/2 Teaspoon Mustard seeds
1/2 Teaspoon Cumin seeds
1/2 Teaspoon Onion seeds
1/2 Teaspoon Fennel seeds
1/4 Teaspoon Carrom seeds
1/4 Teaspoon Turmeric powder
1 Teaspoon Chilli powder - or as per your taste
1 Teaspoon Pickle masala powder
1/4 Teaspoon Black pepper powder
1/4 Teaspoon Chat masala
1 Teaspoon Ginger garlic paste
1 Teaspoon Sugar
Salt - as per your taste
2 Teaspoons Lime juice
1/2 Cup Water
2 Tablespoons Oil
1 Tablespoons Coriander leaves - freshly chopped (optional)


Boil the baby potatoes  and peel them.   If the potatoes are too  big then
 cut into halves.

Heat a  pan, add the oil then 
mustard seeds, cumin seeds, onion seeds, fennel seeds, carton seeds  and  when they crackle add the  asafoetida . Immediately add the  turmeric, red chilli powder, pickle masala, ginger garlic paste and little water fry well till the masalas are cooked. Now, add the boiled baby potatoes into it and mix well.  Add the salt, sugar,  black pepper, lime juice and chat masala.  Again add a little water, mix all of this well.  Let it cook on  medium flame until the water evaporate and let the masalas coat the  baby potatoes. Garnish with  coriander leaves.
