aloo chokha recipe

Aloo chokha is one of the side dishes that is served with Litti chokha. I am sharing the accompaniments or sides served with litti and have already shared Tomato chokha And Baingan chokha.

The recipe is again very easy to prepare. One of the ingredient that is the highlight of this recipe is mustard oil, which gives the chokha a slight pungent flavor. So do not skip it.

You can serve aloo chokha with litti chokha or can even serve it as a side dish with any North Indian meal.

How to make aloo chokha

1. First boil or steam 2 medium potatoes (160 grams) till they are thoroughly cooked. Allow them to become warm. You can steam them in a pan or electric rice cooker or pressure cook them in 1.25 to 1.5 cups water for 5 to 6 whistles.
