Aloo Posto

A friend of mine is married to a Bengali. Here's a simple, but classic recipe from her mother-in-law.

Prepare Kaccha: Grind together Khuskhus, green mirchi, sarso oil and salt with a little water. (This kaccha can also be used like chutney). 

Peel and dice potatoes (fairly small).  Heat some oil. Add the diced potatoes, haldi, red chilli powder, posto (kaccha), cover and cook it. Add sarso oil before serving. Garnish with a bit of dhania.
