KhusKhus Wale Aloo/ Flavoured Potatoes in Poppy Seeds Masala

This recipe comes from the living recipe book in my house, yes my mom-in-law again 🙂 Khuskhus gives a very subtle flavour and aroma to the potaoes. It doesn’t scream of flavour like ……say Cinnamon or Fennels but just holds its own place in a soft subtle way 🙂 Ideal for a simple dinner.

2 tbsp Poppy Seeds (KhusKhus)
2 tbsp Coriander Seeds
1/2 tsp Nigella seeds (Kalonji)
1 tsp Dry Mango powder (Amchur)
1/4 tsp Red Chilli Powder
Salt to taste
1 -2 tbsp Oil
pinch of Asafoetida (Heeng)

4 medium sized Potatoes


  • Dry roast the coriander seeds. Grind them to a powder along with poppy seeds.
  • Peel and cut the potatoes into thin pieces so that they cook faster.
  • Heat the oil in a wok.
  • Add asafoetida. Add Nigella seeds. Add ref chilli powder. Add potato. Add Poppy Seeds powder.
  • Cover and cook. Stir in between. When potatoes are done, add dry mango powder. Cook for another minute.
  • Serve hot with Chapatis.
