Aloo Ki Burtha


Spiced Smashed Spuds

Serves 4 as a side or to stuff Parathas 

  • 450g floury potatoes, boiled and peeled
  • 1 medium onion, diced finely
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 green chillies, chopped
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • 1/3 tsp chilli powder
  • 2 large tomatoes, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Fist of coriander leaves, chopped
  • 100g unsalted butter (optional)

How To Make Masala Mash

Mash the boiled potatoes coarsely. Fry the onion in the oil in a large pan until opaque and still retaining a little crunch. Add the cumin seeds, chillies, turmeric and chilli powder, stirring until the mix has dried a little and is starting to scent the pan. Add this masala to the potatoes and combine thoroughly together with the freshly chopped tomatoes, salt and coriander. The burtha should take on a sunny disposition as the turmeric colours its complexion. If you’re looking for a smoother taste, mix in the butter, but the consistency should remain rough rather than puréed. This Indian spiced potato recips is gloriously simple and deliciously cheap, you could use it as an alternative to traditional spuds and use it as a masala mash either way this Aloo Ki Burtha recipe is a winner.
