In the up-class Bengali kitchen in Kolkata and Hooghly another recipe of alu-posto or posto-chachari is found which I think better in taste and flavour. In it potato is not used in cube shape but in half-round or sickle shape. Turmeric,whole chilly and panch-foron are used. Poppy seeds are ground little coarsely after soaking them water for five minutes. Instead of making it in paste form the ground poppy seed is set aside in the from of a ball.1.Heat mustard oil and add little panch foron, whole chilly and poured the potatoes mixed with turmeric. After frying a little pour water to boil them. Add salt and apinch of sugar. A little before the potatoes become fully boiled and the water dries up place the ground poppy seed ball on it.When potatoes become fully boiled mix the poppy seed ball with potatoes. the posto-chachari will be ready to serve.

This Bengali vegetable is so easy to make with lots of Khus khus. The combo is just very good and so little ingredients used to make this.
