Achari Aloo

Nowadays i couldnt stop myself to buy cute baby potatoes from my favourite farmer's market, this time i wanted to make a delicious dish instead of preparing the same potato roast or curry, while going through Aipi's US Masala i got hooked immediately with this Achari Aloo, most of us know that Aipi's blog have many authentic North Indian dishes as well as International dishes, i love her blog, everytime i go there she simply rocks with her beautiful clicks which makes me hungry even after having my lunch or dinner...Coming to this achari aloo, initially i thought this dish will go for many cooking process and for my surprise Aipi's achari aloo's goes truly for a quick preparation and tastes truly marvellous, we enjoyed having this achari aloo as side dish along with rotis...Sending this yummy potato dish to Tried & Tasted guest hosted by Priya,event by Lakshmi and to AWED-Indian Cuisine guest hosted by Ayeesha,event by DK..
