Thanks JB.
Ive been creating various forms of Masala Fries and these Potatoes,
what I would call Zeera Aloo, will make really tasty Masala fries, deep fried crisp and dusted with a Chilli/Chat powder mix.

I've worked alongside BIR Chefs creating special dishes, where they do poached/confit Potatoes in oil with spice, mainly Haldi,
which gives the Potato the look of sliced Mango when plated. Not to my taste, but Hey Ho.

Good to see different approaches  to BIR
cheers Chewy
Burn those spices "Singefry" and Bhunao are the keys to success.
Smoking Mustard Oil is good for You and your curries.....Lol

I’m not sure if  this Video on pre cooking Potatoes  is already posted on the forum, but I think it’s definitely worth adding to this discussion. Just about same method observed by JB in his takeaway.

Video Recipe calls for 15, 20 mins at 180. Unfortunately I was busy and my time overlapped my preset time of 20 mins. Potatoes were delicious but a little to soft to add to a curry, this could be my fault or the time may need tweaking.. next time I will try 15mins preheated at 150

Delicious

By co-incidence, I had my first-ever sag aloo at Mrs Bari's Golden Temple restaurant on Friday, and it was one of the nicest sag aloos I have ever had.  The only spice I could positively identify was mustard seed, but when I asked Mrs Bari what other spices she had used she said she did not know.  Apparently Mr Bari looks after all the roasting/grinding/blending, and she just uses what he makes.  The other point that emerged was that demand for aloo-based dishes is sufficiently low that she does not prepare them in advance.  Instead, she peeled the potatoes when I placed my order, cooked them in a pressure cooker, and then made the dish from scratch.  So unless she uses spices in her pressure cooker (a possibility, of course) then it looks as if her recipe requires no special pre-cook at all, and all the flavour is added when the dish is made.
