Rasedar Aloo

For Week 4 of CCC#1, I chose to make this irresistible Rasedar Aloo. I first got a taste of this at my friend, Pooja's place. She treated us to this fantastic accompaniment with Bedmi Puri.

I had to get the recipe from her and it has become a new favorite at home. I was not comfortable with using boiled potatoes to start with and then pressure cooking the whole thing with all the spices in there. But I now realize that it enhances the flavor to its best!!

The first time I made it, both my husband and the older one were competing against each other as to who is going to get the last scoop out of the dish! I served it with regular puris for the kids and Oats And Spring Onion Paratha for the adults. Also paired it with Rava Uthappam.
