Aloo Masala

It’s very difficult to go wrong with potatoes. They are utterly delicious and a good potato recipe includes well thought out seasoning. This recipe is one of them! It’s got all the key Indian Masala’s and an added kick of amchur powder which makes so many dishes extra tasty. My husband and I enjoyed this with some chappatis for lunch today, hope you try this for your family 🙂
