  • 4-5 large potatoes
  • 1 tbsp coriander seeds (dhania)
  • 1 medium onion finely chopped
  • 1" piece of ginger finely chopped
  • 1-2 chopped green chillies
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp Kashmiri red chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 2 tsp coriander powder (dhania)
  • 2 tsp cumin powder (jeera)
  • 2 tsp amchoor (dry mango) powder
  • 1 tsp kasoori methi (dry fenugreek leaves)
  • 2 tbsp chopped green coriander leaves
  • 2 tbsp mustard oil


  • Boil the potatoes and cut them into bite-sized pieces.
  • Heat mustard oil in a pan to the smoking point and let it cool a bit.
  • Crush the coriander seeds between the palms of your hand to release their flavor. Add them to the oil.
  • When they begin to crackle, add in the chopped ginger and green chillies. Saute for a minute.
  • Add in the chopped onions and saute until translucent.
  • Next, add the boiled potatoes and mix well.
  • Now add in the dry masalas – salt, Kashmiri red chilli powder, turmeric powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, and amchoor powder. Mix until the potatoes are well coated.
  • Cover with a lid and cook on low heat for a few minutes so that the potatoes soak in the masalas.
  • Crush the kasoori methi and add it to the potatoes. Mix.
  • To finish, add in the coriander leaves. Mix well.
  • The Chatpate Dhania Aloo are ready to serve. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve hot.
