How To Make Baked Achari Aloo:
Boil 4 medium size potatoes, peel, mash and keep aside.
Now heat 2 tablespoon oil in a pan. Add pinch of cumin seeds (jeera), pinch of mustard seeds (black rai), pinch of black onion seeds ( kalonji).
Once seeds start cracking, add 1 chopped onion.
Add 5-6 chopped garlic pods and 1 chopped green chillies if you prefer. I am not adding chillies here.
Once onion turns translucent and garlic also cooks and changes color, add mashed potatoes in it. Mix everything. Add few tablespoon oil if required.
Now add salt and mix the mixture again. Stir and cook for more 2-3 minutes.
Switch off the flame and keep the mixture aside in plate. We have to shape tikkies of these potatoes mixture.
Now we have to prepare achari marinade for Baked Achari Aloo by the time aloo mixture is getting cool a bit.
We require curd for the marinade. Also we will be adding some roasted spices to enhance the flavour.
Take curd in a bowl. Add 2-3 teaspoon roasted masala powder( roasted cumin, black pepper and corriander powder) to the curd.
Add pinch of roasted carrom seeds (ajwain) fennel seeds (saunf) and some black salt to the curd marinade. Mix.
Now add 2 tablespoon pickle masala and mix everything together. Our marinade is ready. I am using mango pickle here. You can use any other pickle flavour here in this recipe.
