Baby Potatoes in Nigella Seeds & Green Chili Paste #sikandalouscuisine

'Kalojeere-Knachalonka Bata diye Guti Aloo r Dum'/Dum or cooked Baby Potatoes in a paste of Nigella Seeds and Green Chillies.

Feedback time for Pritha Dutta - When I saw the photograph of what she had shared , I wondered how these black looking potatoes would taste - and what better way than to cook and discover for myself ! The answer is - they tasted amazing , yes there is a taste of bitter at the end , and I think one needs to keep chili factor high too . I loved this recipe and here is what I did .

250 gms of Unpeeled Baby Potatoes- Cut in two pieces.
3 heaped Tablespoons of Nigella Seed Paste
1 Tablespoon of Green Chilli Paste.
1 Teaspoon of Black Pepper Powder.

Heat ghee in a pan and add the potatoes. Add salt to taste. Once they are half done, add the Nigella-Green Chilli paste. Sprinkle some water and mix well. You may also add some Black Pepper powder at this stage. Now cover the pan, put the flame on low and cook in dum for about 10-15 minutes or till the potatoes are done. Serve with steamed rice.

This was delicious and will be made more often ! Thank you Pritha for the fantastic recipe.
