Fried Potatoes In Tangy Sauce/ Khatte Aloo Recipe

Everyone loves potatoes from kids to oldies. Potatoes can make a great meal for Vegetarians as they help to fill you up and they taste yummy even if it is spicy, salty, tangy as well as sweet. Eat potatoes with any vegetable or meat, it just blends well. I think it enhances the taste of any meal if served right. I can even eat boiled potatoes sprinkled with salt on it. Maybe I am a higher level of foodie who can even enjoy eating boiled stuff without any spice. That's the way I am and I am sure you too must be enjoying eating crazy stuff which may sound strange to some. But we are hoggerz, we can eat anything we want after all food keeps us happy.

Today's recipe is Khate Aloo which means Tangy Potato. You guys must be thinking what's wrong with me, why am I just focusing on Veg Hoggerz these days!. Well, there is nothing like veg or non-veg as our body needs all the vitamins so why not vegetables. Eat everything possible from non-veg to veg. I can understand not all can eat non-veg because of whatever reasons, but I request Non-veg hoggerz to eat colorful and beautiful vegetables at least once or twice in a week for a healthy and blissful life.

This recipe is simply the easiest recipe you can make and serve as a snack in just 10 minutes. After a busy and stressful day, If you don't have an excitement and energy in preparing snacks for your family, then try this one and give yourself a break. I have minimized the ingredients and twisted it with spicy flavor. If you have leftover tamarind pulp or boiled potatoes, then simply toss them together and serve it in a big bowl with chopped cilantro and some crushed potato chips on top.

Fried Potatoes In Tangy Sauce/ Khatte Aloo Recipe

Khatte Aloo / Spicy Saucy Diced Potatoes

Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Serves: 2 persons

1 tablespoon Cooking oil
3 large size boiled, peeled and chopped Potatoes
Water for boiling potatoes and for tamarind pulp preparation
1 cup Tamarind pulp
1/4 teaspoon crushed garlic
3-4 tablespoons Chili flakes
1/2 teaspoon Cumin seeds
1 tablespoon roughly chopped Cilantro or coriander leaves
Salt to taste

  • In a pan, add 4 cups of water and bring it to boil. Add 3 washed potatoes and let them boil for 10 minutes. Keep checking them by using a fork. If the fork comes out easily, then the potatoes are done. Turn off the flame and remove them in a plate. Peel them and slice them into large pieces. 
  • In another pan, boil 1 cup of water and add unseeded tamarind and let it boil for 5-8 minutes until the liquid thickens. Now, turn off the flame and transfer the liquid into a bowl through a sieve. Keep pressing the tamarind fiber with the help of the fork so that all the tamarind pulp gets separated from the fiber into the bowl. Discard the fiber and keep the tamarind pulp aside.
  • I always use leftover tamarind chutney or sauce in Khate Aloo as it saves a lot of time. You can even boil potatoes and refrigerate it 2-3 days earlier so that you can make this snack in 10 minutes. This is how I prepare things in advance!
  • In a pan, heat 1 tablespoon of cooking oil, add half teaspoon cumin seeds or zeera and let them pop for a few seconds. At this point, add crushed garlic and you can also add curry leaves if you like.
  • Immediately, mix tamarind pulp, 3 tablespoons of red chili flakes and salt to taste. Combine the mixture and fry for a minute. 
  • Now add boiled potatoes, chopped cilantro or coriander leaves and gently mix the boiled potatoes with the pulp mixture. Adjust the seasoning and salt. You can reduce chili flakes and tamarind pulp as per your liking's.
  • Let the potatoes cook in low-medium flame for about 5 minutes. Check occasionally.
  • Remove in a plate and garnish with chopped cilantro. Serve hot.
You can serve it with nachos and believe me it tastes superb! My husband loves it and so do I :)
