Aaloo Morich & Kaalo Jeere’r Loochi | Aaloo-Kaali Mirch & Kalaunji Waale Poori Recipe

This is a Bengali dish, perfect for breakfast/brunch - known as Aaloo Morich & Loochi (Morich means Pepper, Kaalo Jeere means Nigella Seeds & Loochi means Pooris). These two items were made by Maa quite frequently on Sundays when I was a little girl. Absolutely delicious & easy to make. The potatoes are cooked with just two ingredients - Salt & Pepper. Tastes even better when the Peppercorns are freshly & coarsely milled or pounded in a mortar & pestle. Typically, Loochi is made of 100% All Purpose Flour, but I use 50-50 All-Purpose Flour & Whole Wheat Flour. I find it tastier & easier to roll out.
