jeera aloo recipe for fasting, how to make aloo jeera recipe

jeera aloo recipe for fasting or vrat – a quick dish of sauteed boiled potatoes with cumin and green chillies.

most of the fasting recipes are very quick and easy to make. as many spices and herbs are not allowed during fasting days. moreover you don’t have to chop onions, garlic etc. so fasting food is not only quicker to prepare but it is also easiest to digest. a good time to purify body-mind and get connected to your divine nature.

this jeera aloo dish is relatively very simple and quick to make. i have also posted another aloo jeera recipe which you can make on normal days. few more fasting recipes made using aloo are aloo tamatar ki sabzi, vrat wale aloo, dahi aloo, aloo paneer kofta, aloo chaat and aloo palak sabzi.

serve jeera aloo with kuttu ki paratha or rajgira ki poori or singhare ke atte ki poori. plain curd will go very well as an accompaniment.
