A scrumptious Bengali delicacy of deep-fried potatoes coated with a lip-smacking masala of roasted poppy seeds and spicy green chillies. The aroma of roasted poppy seeds, the crispness of the potato cubes and the warm taste of green chillies on your palate makes the Aloo Poshto a really memorable dish.
Serve it along with other Bengali classics like the Luchi , Baingan Bhaja and Bengali Matarsutir Dal to make a complete meal.
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan and deep-fry the potatoes in few batches, till they turn golden brown in colour from all the sides. Keep aside.
- Dry roast the poppy seeds in a small non-stick pan for 2 to 3 minutes.
- Combine the roasted poppy seeds and green chillies in a mixer along with ¼ cup of water and blend till smooth. Keep aside.

- Add the fried potatoes, 1 tbsp of water and salt, toss well and cook on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes.
