🥔 Aloo ko Achaar

Achaars are a kind of nepali sidedish and a flavourful addition to every meal. This one was described as Potato-salad by my german relatives, and it kind of fits.

Ingredients

  • 4-5 Potatoes, boiled and diced
  • Cucumber, diced
  • 3 spoons of Brown Sesame or Niger Seeds, dry roasted and ground
  • Methi
  • Szechuanpepper
  • 1 Lemon

Instructions

Boil the Potatoes and mix them with the cucumber, add a bit of Kurkuma in one spot.

Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a pan and roast the methi until it’s black. You might be tempted to add less oil, but it needs quite a lot.

Once the methi has become black, pour it over the kurkuma with the hot oil. It should give a satisfying fzzzz. Mix in the sesame powder.

Add Salt, Szechuanpepper, Lemon. Balance the three ingredients so that each is present in the taste but does not overshadow the others.
