Timur is a Nepali spice which have a very strong tongue tickling taste and is used in this aloo ko achar,The sweet Nepali lady not only shared her authentic family recipe but also gave me some timur which she brough from Nepal. You can also use sichuan pepper instead of timur . The Aloo ko achar taste delicious even without using timur.
