Tips:

  • Adjust the spices according to your spice level.
  • Always use less oil. While adding Masala powder and spices, add little water to sauté.
  • Green chilly should be medium spicy.
  • Do not add water while roasting Potato. Stir in between to avoid getting burnt. The Potato will soak the flavors of the Masala this way.
