    This looks like a tasty recipe for mashed potatoes with an Indian twist; but I am not sure it is fair to call it aloo bharta. Milk and butter?? Shudder, shudder!... You need oil, preferably mustard oil that has been cooked with the spices. Also, we normally don't whip the potatoes to the consistency of western-style mashed potatoes. In my family we always grated the potatoes, leaving some texture.

    Just made it and everyone loved it. Such a simple recipe which is an absolute appetizer. Thanks for sharing it.

    Delicious! The quantities of spices and lemon juice give these potatoes perfect flavor that is not overpowering but nicely balanced. I love the ever so slight tang from the lemon juice. Husband said that these may be his new favorite mashed potatoes. I did not use butter, but used about 2-3 Tbs. of Earth Balance spread. Did not include the chili pepper, did not heat the milk. Will DEFINITELY make these again. Thank you for sharing pattikay.

    I did not have the right ingredients, so I made a very-much changed version of this recipe. Therefore, I am not rating it. But I do want to say that Garam Masala is an awesome addition to mashed potatoes. Thank you for posting!
