Kolkata Street Food: Alu Batte

Alu Batte is a simple and easy side dish made with mashed potatoes. It goes very well with Rice and Dal.

  1. Potatoes - 3 medium sized
  2. Mustard oil - 2 tbsp
  3. Salt to taste
  4. Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  5. Chilli powder - 1 tsp
  • I used pressure cooker to cook potatoes, but be careful to not over cook them
  • Starchy potatoes will be better for Alu Batte
  1. Peel and potatoes with salt until they are soft.
  2. Mash the cooked potatoes roughly, we are NOT looking for a paste consistency
  3. Heat oil in a kadai
  4. Add turmeric, and chilli powder and give a stir
  5. Add potatoes to the above and mix well and switch off the heat
Serve hot Alu Batte with Rice and Dal
