I tried this recipe it came out tasty and spicy. It could be an advantage if any tip or details to fry the potatoes. Also the times mentioned to fry the Onion is paste is less, it should be at least 8-10 mins.. The paste looked and tasted kacha in 1-2 mins if frying.. Overall good, different, enjoyed by the family.. I will make this again.. Thanks

Tarla Dalal    Hi Marvel, thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed the recipe. If you wish to fry the potatoes you can till crisp. Regarding the onion paste, 2 minutes was good enough as it is cooked further as well with other ingredients, however if you yet want to cook ti more you can surely do it. Do try more and more recipes and let us know how they turned out..Happy Cooking !!
