Aloo Makalla

Aloo makalla

2 pounds small potatoes of uniform size, peeled

1 teaspoon table salt or 2 teaspoons kosher salt

½ teaspoon ground turmeric

About 3 cups canola or peanut oil for frying


Place the potatoes in a large pot and add water to just cover. Add the salt and turmeric. Bring to a boil and parboil for 30 seconds. Drain. Let cool, then pat dry. Prick each potato once with the tines of a fork.

Place the potatoes in a wide pot and add enough oil to cover. Bring to a boil, without stirring, over medium-high heat, about 15 minutes.

Reduce the heat to low and simmer, shaking the pan occasionally, until the potatoes are crusty and lightly golden, about 1 hour. At this point, the potatoes can be removed from the heat and allowed to sit in the oil, for up to 3 hours.

Shortly before serving, increase the heat to medium-high and fry until the crust is very hard and golden brown, about 10 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm
