Til Walle aalo

Hello Friends.
 I am yet to find a person who says - I hate potatoes. Potatoes are enjoyed in any dish and relished by every age group. Be it frenchfries with tomato ketchep or aloo tuk with chutney, an aloo in any dish is a relish. Isnt it?
This is one of my favourite forms of potato.The baby small potatoes taste sweetish and melts in the mouth. They look appealing too.

This recipe is quick as well as super healthy! Today's recipe is a modified version of dum aloo with the ingredients I had a home. It turned out very yummy, hence I wish to share it with you. Given it the name " Til walle Aloo". If you have a better name, do share in the comments below.


250 gms boiled and peeled baby potatoes
1/2 methi seeds
1/2 mustard seeds (Rai)
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 cup Tamarind pulp
I tbsp Oil
Few curry leaves
Finely chopped corriander leaves
Salt to taste
1 tsp til ( sesame seeds )


1. Firstly boil and cook the baby potatoes in a pressure cooker for just 2 whistles. As they are tiny it will cook easily. Run them in cold water, the peeps will come off more easily.

2. Dry roast the sesame seeds.  Soak the tamarind in warm water for ten minutes or so. Squeeze and take out the pulp for using later.

3. Take a frying pan and add oil to it. On medium flame, add mustard, methi and curry leaves and let it splutter until it emits an aroma.

4. Now add the baby potatoes, turmeric and chilli powder. Saute till the potatoes get coated with the masalas.

5. Now add the tamarind paste and salt. Simmer on slow gas with covered lid. Let the gravy reduce and become semi dry.

6. Toss in the sesame seeds and corriander. Now switch the gas off and stir for a minute.

7. Garnish with a little corriander and white til before serving it hot with roti

8. This can be an excellent dish for kitty parties. As it can be picked up with a toothpick without getting your hands dirty.


Enjoy it garma garam.

If you don't have tamarind pulp add tomato puree and ketchup.

You can also use regular potatoes for this dish.

Add a pinch of sugar if you like the taste to be sweet/sour.
