Aloo (Potato ) Kathliyan

This recipe is from  Lata Raja's Flavours and Tastes.  It is nice to find a potato recipe that looks different and still tastes good.  If you have a food processor or a gadget that makes even thin rounds of potato it will make the job easier.  Try it.

Potatoes - 250 gms
Cumin seeds ( jeera ) 1/2 tsp
Carom seeds (ajwain) 1/4 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Garlic crushed - 1/4 tsp
Ginger crushed - 1/4 tsp  ( I added ginger-garlic paste)
Oil - about 2 -3 tbsps
Green chili - 1 small finely chopped
Red chili flakes - to taste - depending on spice tolerance
Chaat masala powder - 1/4 tsp (optional)
Asafoetida (hing) - large pinch
Curry leaves - few
Coriander leaves for garnish
Salt to taste
Lime juice - 1 tsp

Wash, peel potatoes and evenly slice them into thin rounds
Bring water to a boil .  Add turmeric powder .  Place the cut potato into the pan
Allow it to boil and simmer for a couple of minutes. The potato should be just soft and not overly boiled
Take a wok, add the oil
And the cumin and carom seeds
The curry leaves, ginger-garlic paste or crushed ginger and garlic, asafoetida, green chilies, chili flakes
Add the potato slices, salt,chili powder (if you so desire a spicier product) and chaat masala.
Allow the potato slices to brown a bit - not necessary - but I like it better that way!
And all the spices to coat the slices
Be gentle to avoid breaking the slices.
Squeeze lime juice
Garnish with coriander leaves
Serve and enjoy !
