Jeera Aloo

                                                                    Jeera is nothing but Cumin seeds and Aloo is potato.This Jeera aloo subzi is a very popular north Indian subzi with Potatoes Tossed with Cumin seeds and few other spices.People usually make it during fasting period during festival and pooja times becuase this has no onion or garlic and potatoes are filling and cumin seeds are very good digestive.
I am making this subzi along with some dal for roti and rice.Since the subzi is dry it is always accompanied with some kind of Dal.You can drizzle some lemon juice and have it (as a starter) with some sliced onions it tastes heavenly!!!

You will Need(serves 2-3 People)

  • 3 to 4 Potatoes Boiled and diced
  • 1 tsp Cumin seeds
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 1/2 tsp to 3/4 tsp Red Chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp Aamchur or Dry Mango Powder
  • Salt to taste
  • One tbs Of Oil or Ghee
  • 1 tbs Chopped Coriander Leaves

How to
1.Boil and dice the potatoes  into medium sized pieces
2.Heat oil or ghee in a pan crackle cumin seeds.
3.Lower the flame add turmeric,chilli,aamchur powder and saute for few seconds.
4.Add the chopped Potatoes and salt and mix well so that it gets coated well with the masalas.
5.Simmer and allow the potatoes to get roasted well and as much as you desire.
6.Garnish with chopped Coriander leaves.

Enjoy it as a starter too!!!!!

  • It is a dry subzi so it is always accompanied with a dal.
  • If you prefer you can add some garam masala powder to it.
  • If you are making for fasting period you can toss it in ghee.
