What is Tandoori Aloo

Tandoori Aloo is a grilled snack or starter made using baby potatoes. It is spicy and tangy with the flavors of ginger, garlic, mint and fenugreek leaves. It has a sharp flavor of mustard oil that makes it very delicious. These tandoori aloos have been barbecued in the grilling option of a microwave.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for tandoori aloo

Tandoori aloo calls for baby potatoes. However, you may use regular ones by just cutting them into halves or quarters. The marination calls for thick yogurt. You may just hang the regular yogurt for a couple of hours to get thick yogurt. To coat the marination properly on the potatoes, I have used roasted gram flour. Apart from that a lot of fresh ingredients and spices have been used.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
