As a kid one thing that made me go gaga was aloo bharta with rice. My Grandma makes the best aloo bharta ever. Every year we would go to our village for the summers and among all the running around, swings and swims in the family pond one thing that I miss the most is my grandma's aloo bharta.
Its like the ultimate comfort food.
There is actually not much to the recipe but still it just makes me feel loved and cared.
- Potatoes: 2 large boiled with the skin
- Green chillies: 2-3 chopped finely
- Dry Red Chillies: 2 chopped
- Onion:1 large chopped
- Mustard Seeds: 1/2 tsp
- oil: 1 tea spoon
- Salt to taste
Peel the skin of the potatoes and mash well with no lumps.
Take the oil in a pan and heat well.traditionally mustard oil is used but Tanmaya does not like the taste of it so I use normal vegetable oil. You can always use mustard oil, it will for sure enhance the taste.
Add the mustard seeds and red chillies, as the mustard seeds stop spluttering add the green chillies and onions with a pinch of salt, mix well and let it cook till the onion turns transparent.
Add the potatoes and the salt and mix well.
Remove from heat and serve it warm with dal rice or pakhala bhata and enjoy.
Till then Happy Blogging
