Aloo Pitika is an Assamese preparation which is eaten with rice gruel. It is similar to the Potato Gozzu prepared in Mangalore. The only difference is that raw mustard oil is drizzled over the mashed potatoes. Since we do not use mustard oil, I made do with coconut oil.
3 large potatoes
1 large onion
2 green chillies
Juice of lemon
1 tbsp Coconut oil or oil of choice
Pressure cook potatoes. Deskin and mash them well. Add finely chopped onions crushed green chillies, salt and lemon juice as per taste. Finally drizzle with coconut oil and mix thoroughly. Serve as side dish with rice or Roti.
