Alu Posto | আলু পোস্তো

Aloo posto is one of my comfort food with rice. Sometimes the simplest of ingredients produces a fantastic gem of a dish which you savour for years to come. This Aloo Posto is a classic example of how just a few ingredients can yield a creamy spiced potato dish. A staple in Bengali households and one of my all time favorite recipes. I have eaten this so many times at my bong friends homes and served with dal, rice and some pickle.

This Authentic Bengali Aloo Posto is a perfect side to enjoy with Luchi or Dal Rice. The soft morsels of potatoes coated with a creamy poppy seeds coating with a hint of spice from green chilli is treat to the taste buds. Alu posto is a classic Bengali dish. Sparing in its use of spices, this preparation relies on the flavours of potatoes, green chillies and nigella seeds for its taste. What stands out, however, is the nutty flavour of the roasted poppy paste, which also provides body and texture to the gravy. This apparently bland looking dish with just potato and posto is capable of rousing much passion among Bengalis.

The cuisine of Bengal consists of dishes from both East and West Bengal i.e. undivided Bengal era as well as the dishes which originated in the city of Kolkata during the British rule. There is an emphasis on vegetarian cuisine, specially during festivals and is most commonly prepared without onion and garlic. A Mughlai influence on the cuisine is due to the their rule over certain parts of Bengal and the last Mughal emperor Wajid Ali Shah has said to have contributed a lot to the Bengali cuisine.

There is a bit of history involved with the origin of this unique blend of cuisines; The Indian form of “Hakka Cuisine” originates from the fact that the a lot of Chinese restaurants in India are owned by the people of the Hakka origin. Both the Indian and the Chinese cultures combined, accepted and fused happily in terms of food giving birth to an entirely new kind called the Indo-Chinese or the Indian Chinese; with the taste and flavors very different from both Indian and Chinese cuisine, it is a genre by itself. It is bold, varied, spicy – overall an experience by itself. The Indian Chinese flavors are also enjoyed by Indian and Chinese communities in Malaysia, and Singapore.
