Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Slice the potato into thin round slices and arrange on a well-oiled baking pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
When the aloos are done baking, heat up 2-3 Tbsp oil in a pan on low heat. Add all the spices and garlic/ginger and fry for 1-2 minutes to enhance the flavors. Add the baked potato slices to the pan and stir into the fried spices. Continue frying potatoes until the edges are crisp and golden, then take off the heat
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all the quiche batter ingredients. Pour into premade pie crust.
Arrange your fried potatoes atop the quiche. I like to push some slices down under the batter while some stay above it all, ready to crisp up even more in the oven.
Bake for 45-55 minutes at 350 degrees, or until the center is no longer jiggly and the potatoes have browned even more. Now go impress in-laws!
