Chatpate Alu

This recipe is very close to my heart since I have shown this on Television program on Zee Marathi - "Aamhi Saarey Khavayye" with Prashant Damle. This recipe is inspired by a traditional Gujarati recipe, which you find in Gujarati weddings.

Ingredients :
4-5 Potatoes
1 Bowl Cashews
¼ Bowl Sesame (Til)
1 Tspn Aamchur Powder
2-3 Tspns Dhana Jeera Power
2 Tspns Pepper Powder
1 Tspn Red Chilly Powder
3-4 Tspns Asafetida

Preparation :

Boil Potatoes and remove the skin. Cut it into vertical pieces.
Take water in bowl and add salt & Asafoetida (Hing) to it. (Take 3-4 spoons of hing)
Soak the cut potato pieces into the water for 15 minutes
Till that time, fry cashews in oil and keep it aside
Mix Aamchur Powder, Dhana Jeera Powder, Pepper Powder, Red Chilly Powder in a plate and dip potato pieces into the masala.
Now heat oil into Kadai and add sesame seeds (Til) to it.
Now, put potato pieces and fried cashews into Kadai.
Add some sugar to taste and garnish it with finely chopped coriander.
