Hi Chef, you always have great recipe. Being bengali this is my favorite dish. Just one suggestion to avoid milking of posto, my mom always switch the stove before putting the posto paste. She then lets it cook in the stream.

Aloo posto goes best with Urad daal and rice. I am so addicted to this combo, my Malayali wife learned it from my Mom and that is always the welcome dish whenever I visit home?

The chef's way of explaining and enjoying the cooking puts him one notch up over the other videos. More than anything else, his pleasant excitement urges me to try this particular recipe so much! :-)?
