Alu Simla Mirch #sikandalouscuisine

Alu Simla Mirch #sikandalouscuisine
Alu Simla mirch is one recipe where we overcook the potatoes to almost a stage where they break when pressed - the reason perhaps is that this recipe is made using mustard paste and that way potatoes pick up all those delicious pungent mustard flavors - I am only guessing here , but it's a given that when alu capsicum is made the potatoes will be overcooked, and they do taste delicious this way prepared like this.
250 Grams Potatoes - Peel and cut into thick wedges , soak in salted water while you prep the other ingredients.
75-100 Grams Capsicum - remove seeds and cut like potatoes.
1 Large onion - Slice thick like potatoes.
1-2 Dried Red Chilies - Optional.
1/2 Teaspoon Haldi.
 Make Paste:
2 Tablespoons Yellow Mustard Paste:
1/2" Ginger.
4-5 Green Chilies.
1/2 Teaspoon Salt.
Heat Mustard Oil in a wok bring to smoking point , add potatoes  and dried chilies - cook on high at first , then lower heat and cook covered till potatoes are half done. Add haldi and the paste , cook another 2-3 minutes , add capsicum and onions and cook till done.

Towards the end add some water to help form a hint of a gravy and this also overcooks potatoes !Take off heat , add on more raw mustard oil and your delicious alu bhaaji is ready to eat .
