Aloo khaas.. it was a special treat to my family.. as a daily common vegetable was made so delicious.. and yummy. The fried onions and the mixed spice added to it.. gives a nice aroma to the potatoes.. this is the best accompaniment for dal chawal or dal khichidi.. a must try recipe..

The aloo came out just perfect. It's a lovely dry subzi with a hint of methi and the lovely flavor of kashmiri chillies.
