Hot, spicy and delicious Potato 65 is ready to relish.....
Kashmiri red chilli powder gives a nice and bright colour to the dish. It is not necessary to use artificial colouring agent. Adjust red chillies and chilli powder as per your preferred spice levels. I have used only kashmiri chilli powder that is not so HOT but imparts vibrant colour and the spice levels of this dish is absolutely perfect for my family. If you prefer your dish to be little spicy, add little hot variety chilli powder or couple of chopped green chillies.
Adjust red chillies and chilli powder as per your preferred spice levels.
Allow cumin to crackle before adding rest of the ingredients.
Add finely chopped onions in seasoning for added flavour (I just forgot to add in the video).
