About this recipe:
Aloo Bhorta is a very traditional food item in the Bengali cuisine. I love making it on days when I do not feel like cooking. It is spicy, and great to have with steaming plain white rice. I also like having it with Masoor Dal.
4 medium sized potatoes
1 tablespoon mustard oil or ghee
1 onion, finely sliced
4 green chillies chopped
Salt as needed
30 min › Cook:
15 min › Ready in:
Boil the potatoes, and set aside for cooling.
Peel the skin of the potatoes, and smash the potatoes in a bowl.
When the potatoes are smashed, pour in a the mustard oil or ghee and mix again.
Sprinkle the onion slices, chopped green chillies and salt. Mix well until a smooth paste forms. Substitution
Toasted dry red chillies can be used instead of green chillies-the taste will be quite different as red chillies have a distinct form of spiciness.
Use next day
The left over of the Aloo bhorta can be used to make Aloo Poori.
