Achari aloo is a flavorful dry potato dish from north india . Achar in hindi means pickle, and in this dish, potatoes are tempered with spices usually used to make pickles and hence the name of the dish. This spicy, tangy, flavorful dry potato dish is a treat to the taste buds . Achari aloo can be served as a starter dish or a side dish and goes very well with hot pooris, rice, chapati or as an accompaniment with curd rice. Generally, mustard oil is used in the preparation of this dish, but i have made the dish in my regular sunflower oil, as my family does not like the strong flavor of mustard oil. I have not added garlic or onion in this dish, so this is a onion garlic free recipe. The recipe calls for use of baby potatoes, which are more tastier, though you may use regular potatoes in this dish if baby potatoes are not available. To cut down the extra calories, i have boiled the baby potatoes instead of deep frying them. If you too are a fan of the versatile potato, you will surely like this dish. Do give it a try:).
