Rai walay Aloo

It feels like this was just a few years ago. A girl who loved eating her mother’s food has her own family to feed now. How did the time fly by? I feel honored to cook my mother’s dishes and introduce them to my kids and with you.

I have always said, there is something magical about a mother’s food. I hope you experienced that in your life. If you haven’t had that opportunity to do so, then start with my mother’s recipe to feel the warmth and love that comes from my mother’s food.

I have tried cooking this recipe thousands of times throughout my life and it never seems to disappoint me. My husband and his family aren’t Indian so I tend to experiment a lot with different substitutions for red chili powder. I have tried many different Paprikas to substitute for red chili powder and I find Hungarian Sweet Paprika to be the best substitute for Kashmiri chili powder for a less spicy version.

So, If you find that chili powder isn’t for you then try using red Hungarian sweet paprika. It works wonders as well. Although, I prefer Kashmiri chili over any other substitution for an authentic taste. I hope you will try the recipe. Feel free to ask any questions you may have in the comment box.


These potatoes are a huge part of street food in north Gujarat. Widely served with Indian fryums known as “Bhungra” in Gujarati. Fryums are made of potato or tapioca starch and fried in oil.

Instead of frying these Indian fried goodies, I like to use veggie straws. They taste so much similar to fryums and a healthier version.

Thank you for stopping by and reading ❤️!
