Trivia Tadka

Aloo Bhaja is a traditional Bengali recipe that is similar to the regular fried potatoes. It is part of daily meals at Bengali homes and goes well with dals.  


  • Potato (aloo), peeled (5 to 6)
  • Yellow mustard oil (sarson ka tel) (6 tbsp)
  • Cumin seeds (jeera) (¼ tsp)
  • Salt (to taste)
  • MTR Haldi Turmeric Powder (½ tsp)


  • Peel and cut the potatoes into thin strips and keep them soaked in water for about an hour.
  • Remove the potato strips from the water and lightly squeeze out any extra water. Put them in another bowl.
  • Now, add in salt and the MTR Haldi/Turmeric Powder and mix well. Keep aside for 5 minutes.
  • Heat oil in a non-stick pan. Toss in the jeera and then add the potato strips.
  • Keep shallow-frying till they are evenly cooked, crisp and light brown in colour.
  • Drain and place on absorbent paper and serve hot with chappatis.
