Restaurant Style Tandoori Aloo


This is very easy restaurant-style aloo tandoori recipe without using tandoor, It has a smoky tandoor flavor. This aloo has amazing thin crust on top because of sugar and flour, but has very soft inside. Keep eye out when you broil aloo to keep them from burning. To give it a restaurant-style tandoori look, I used a tiny drop of red color. You can totally avoid it if you don't like the food color.

Ingredients:-


  • 5 Medium Red Potatoes
  • 1-1/2 cup Yogurt
  • 1-1/2 tsp Ginger-Garlic paste
  • 1/2 tsp Kashamiri Red Chili Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Hot Red Chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin Powder
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Kasuri Methi
  • 1 tsp All Purpose Flour
  • 1 Small Drop of Red Food Colour (Optional)
  • Pinch of Turmeric
  • Chat Masala
  • Salt to taste


Method:-

1. In bowl mix yogurt, kashmiri red chili, hot chili, ginger-garlic paste, kasuri methi, cumin powder, turmeric, salt, all purpose flour, sugar, and colour.

2. Wash the potato and let them dry.

3. Pierce the potatoes 2-3 times with fork.

4. Place bowl of water in the middle of the microwave.

5. Arrange all the potatoes around the bowl on the microwave plate.

6. Cook the potatoes for 5-6 minutes.

7. Cut the potatoes into halves.

8. Put potato in refrigaretor for 15-20 minutes.

9. Now mix potatoes with yogurt marinade and refrigerate it for 3-4 hours.

10. Preheat oven on 400 degrees for 10 minutes.

11. Place parchment paper on cookie sheet and cook potatoes in oven for just 5-6 minutes.

12. Then broil it until it is gets its thin crust.

13. Sprinkle chat masala and Serve hot with lemon, ranch, or any chutney.

Enjoy...


Tips:-

1. Use chicken or shrimp instead of potatoes with same ingredients for chicken tandoor or shrimp tandoor.

2. Use left-over marinade in parathas, or theplas to make them soft.

Hey Madhavi, nice receipe. Shall try it out this weekend. Was just wondering, what if I add a tsp of beetroot juice for the red color? any inputs? I made potli kachori and for the bow, added beetroot juice for red color and it turned out really colorul :)

I tried this recipe twice - once grilled it over the bbq for vegetarian friends and another time broiled it in my oven for another party in winter. Both times it turned out excellent!!! The spices are just perfect and the flour gives a nice cover to the potato...this one was devoured by both veg and non-veg friends! It used to vanish as soon as it was served. Thank you Madhavi for such a fantastic recipe!
