I’m a Gemini, and I have two opposing personalities. It’s what I’ve been blessed with and lucky for me my husband is a Gemini too. Oh, you don’t have to say, we ride our peaks and valleys in a roller coaster ride and the speed of the ride is determined by which of the four personalities are facing off each other. One thing that’s common to us is we always crave variety, we just cannot carry the same tune no matter what we do and we both are food fanatics and we love to experiment new foods.



Today’s recipe is a result of my vivid imagination. It started with trying to create perfect crispy hasbrowns. But the imagination train just didn’t stop there and it lead to creating a basket rather than just hashbrowns. Now that my imagination got to the basket there has to be something to fill the basket whether its food baskets such as these or a shopping basket 😉 I love to fill them to the brim. Many things work well with potatoes as a base and I tried corn chat as the filling and they were very tasty and quite appeasing to the eye too. I’m sure you have an active imagination, do let me know if you come up with your version for the filling. See you next time with either a tried recipe or a new one.




Aloo Basket with corn chat


  • Frozen Hash Browns/Potatoes -- 1 cup (shredded variety)
  • Corn -- 1 cup
  • Onion -- 1 small (finely chopped)
  • Green Chillies -- 1 (finely chopped) optional
  • Coriander Leaves -- 1 Tbsp (finely chopped)
  • Lemon Juice -- 1 to 2 Tbsp
  • Salt -- to taste
  • Chilli Powder -- 1/2 tsp (adjust to your preference)
  • Chat Masala -- 1/2 tsp (adjust to your preference)
  • Butter or cooking spray to grease the muffin pans


  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Grease muffin pans with either butter or non-stick cooking spray. Thaw frozen hash browns to room temperature.
  2. Gently press hash browns into each muffin molds to form a cup shape. If preferred spray or grease butter on top of each of the hash brown cups. Bake in oven till golden brown. It took me about 20 to 25 minutes in my oven. Let it cool down a bit and gently remove the baskets from the muffin molds and let it cool a bit on a cooling rack.
  3. While the aloo baskets are baking make the chat. In a medium bowl, mix corn, onions, green chillies, coriander leaves, salt, chilli powder, chat masala powder, and lemon juice.
  4. When ready to serve, place the aloo basket on a serving plate and fill the basket with corn chat. Serve immediately. Enjoy!!!
