How to Make Broken Potatoes With Spices - Aloo Ka Bhurta

Step-by-Step

  1. Boil the potatoes in their skins and leave them to cool. Then peel and break them into a lumpy mash. If preferred, peel potatoes first and then boil.

    Fry until the onions turn a rich, golden brown.
  3. Add the mashed potato.
  4. Sprinkle in, and mix well after each addition, the turmeric, tomato, green chili, and salt.
