Special PunjaBee Aloo

Lightly Spiced Crunchy Potatoes

These potatoes are magic when cooked as a side or even on their own. So quick and simple to put together. They are great as a side with the Punjabee Tandoori Style Chicken – give them a go, I bet you won’t want potatoes done any other way!

Special PunjaBee Aloo

Ingredients – Serves 6

8 medium Maris Piper potatoes – peeled and cubed

1 tablespoon of oil or ghee

2 teaspoons of garlic powder

1 teaspoon of red chilli powder

Quarter teaspoon cumin powder

Quarter teaspoon turmeric

1 teaspoon of salt


  1. Add the cubed potatoes to salted water ensuring they are fully immersed in it and bring to the boil
  2. Allow them to cook for a further couple of minutes then drain and dry using paper towel
  3. Mix all the spices together in a small bowl
  4. In a large frying pan, warm up the oil and once it is warmed add the potatoes
  5. Toss them in the oil then sprinkle on the mixed spices and make sure they are totally covered in the mix
  6. Fry the potatoes on a medium heat moving them around the pan frequently so they cook and crispen up evenly
  7. Continue frying them until they are cooked through and crunchy on the outside
  8. If they get a little charred on the outside – don’t worry too much it adds to the flavour
  9. Your potatoes are ready!
