special aloo posto

This is my husband, Prithwis' favourite recipe. He is an engineer from IIT KGP, a PhD from UT Dallas, Texas. Apart from a being a complete food-freak, he is the most delightful person on earth. You can visit his web-space on, which completed ten years this May

  • shrimp (shelled, deveined, and cleaned) - 200gms
  • posto (kus-kus) - finely ground with a few green chillies and water -1cup
  • potato - diced
  • patol (parwal) - finely chopped
  • jhingey - chopped
  • paanch phorone (a combination of five spices - kalanji, cummin, fenugreek, saunf, mustard)
  • mustard oil
  • green chillies
  • salt and turmeric powder
Heat mustard oil, and add add 1tsp paanch phorone to splatter. Then add all the vegetables. Fry them for 10 minutes. Now add the shrimp, salt and turmeric powder, and simmer for another 10 minutes.
