Recipe of Aloo Posto

Aloo Posto or Poppy Seeds is one of the most popular bengali recipe loved by all. It is the recipe of spiced potatoes cooked with chilli and turmeric.  From my childhood i has been a huge fan of this dish and till today when aloo posto was cooked in our house i used to eat the larger part of it.  My mom now told that next time when she will cook this item she will hide it from me. So guys just imagine my situation now, haha….jokes apart. I am sure not only in my house but in every bong household aloo posto will be hugely demanding.

Now friends lets find out how to cook this delicious dish and what we need to fulfill it.
