Aloo Or Potato Fry
Aloo or Potato Fry is simple stir fried potato recipe made using basic Indian spice mix. This quick recipe of chunky potato cubes stir fried with few basic spices brings out the best in them. I used the new Le Creuset TNS 26cm Shallow Frying Pan to make this mouthwatering dish which cooked it to perfection.
