Achari Aloo

Week 3 Day 3  of BM #58 - 

This has been in my to-do list for a while now. The potatoes are cooked with some very typical and flavorful spices. The addition of Kalonji and Fennel with a hint of vinegar takes these spiced potatoes to a different level.

These spiced potatoes can be used as a stuffing for a samosa or can be rolled in a paratha.
