Bhuna Achari Aaloo


I gave this recipe name Bhuna Achari Aaloo because these aaloo (potato) was marinated in the leftover of pickle oil and masala. I grill these potatoes to give an authentic flavor (like Charcoal flavors) to it. Small round potato suits better for this recipe. This is tried and tasted recipe and once you make, I promise you will make it further.

I once went to this so-called party in the woods with my husbands and his colleagues. They had a barbeque and more their. They systematically organized this event there. One of his colleague’s wife pre-prepared this aaloo and had bought for barbecue party there. It tasted so awesome that I tried at home by only the direction of my remaining taste bud has shown.


6 to 8 red small potatoes

6 to 8 small yellow potatoes

1/2 tbsp fennel powder

1/2 tbsp coriander powder

2 tsp chili powder

2 tbsp leftover pickle masala

salt to taste.

ziploc bag


  • Cut and Pierce hole in potato. ( you can keep with potato without cut also)


  •  Put all the ingredients in a Ziploc bag. Mix well.
  • Keep in refrigerator 3 to 4hrs ( I kept it overnight) to marinate.
  • Bake or grill till cooked. ( I baked at 400 deg Celsius )

Note: No adding extra oil because leftover pickle masala has enough to cook in.
