    Really easy to make just added a teaspoon of black mustard seed and a red chilli ( added at the same time with the other spices) and it was lovely. Definitely be making again.  -  17 Aug 2013


    Lovely recipe, I got sidetracked and par boiled the potatoes first but would stick to the recipe next time, there will be a next time! I used some fry light oil, garlic masala and coriander powder, really nice guidelines.  -  07 Jun 2016


    I've been making Aloo Phujhi for years and everyone loves it. I always add some cut up sweet peppers, carrots and little broccoli. It gives it nice color. That's how they serve it at my favorite Indian restaurant. My family likes spicy so I kick the spice up quite a bit. I made this once for a party and the owner of a Indian restaurant was there and asked who made it and complimented me on how good it was. This recipe is a keeper!  -  02 Feb 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
