TANDOORI ALOO RECIPE

   Potatoes are always find place in all parties and this tandoori aloo recipe is a wonderful starter for a party and can be had as an accompaniment to rice| puloas too. I saw this recipe of tandoori aloo in Laskhmi's place and i bookmarked this and waiting to try this. Last week i got cute baby potatoes from the market and tried this yesterday morning . Tandoori aloo turned out so crisp and yum.

I tried this recipe both in oven and stove top and i was pretty happy with both the results.. Couldn’t take step wise pictures as i was in a hurry and it was a weekday morning. But will update soon with stepwise pictures.

Lakshmi made the tandoori masala by herself and  me being a lazy person didn’t do this and used store bought tandoori masala.

This recipe can be made with normal big potatoes too .

  • In a bowl mix the yogurt , tandoori masala powder,ginger garlic paste, redchilli powder and salt.

  • Grease your baking tray or line in the tray with aluminum foil.
  • Bake for 5 to 7 minutes in a preheated oven at 180 degrees C.
  • Turn the potatoes and bake for another 5 minutes.

ATERNATIVELY you can make this on stove top too .

  • Cook for 5 minutes in medium flame and carefully turn over this without mashing the potatoes.
  • Cook till you find golden spots on all sides.
  • Garnish with chopped coriander leaves if you want.
