Dal chawal is probably the most comforting meal in Indian cuisine. It is easy to make, soul soothing and helps you put together a wholesome meal anytime of the day. Alongside, we take achar, papad and sabzi at times. But what we enjoy the most is some spicy aloo chokha by the side. Aloo chokha is a desi-style mashed potato that is mixed with some basic Indian spices. What we love the most is the fact that aloo chokha follows no specific recipe. In fact, each region of India has its unique ingredients to add to boiled aloo. In Bihar, people enjoy fried onion, in Bengal, people use mustard oil, raw onion etc. In some places, it is sauted on kadhai with kalonji and whole red chilli. That's not all. You can go as creative as you want with a hearty aloo chokha recipe.
