mathura ke dubki wale aloo recipe with step by step photos – a thin spiced and tasty curry made with potatoes and famous in mathura – one of the holy cities in the northern part of india, in uttar pradesh.

i have been both to mathura and vrindavan. while mathura is associated with the birth of lord krishna. in vrindavan lord krishna spent his childhood. when we visited there, we did not have the specialties of these places. not even dubki wale aloo or aloo sabzi as its known. it was a short visit to these places and we would have our food at the iskcon temple hotel’s restaurant. in case you visit uttar pradesh, then some of the popular recipes which you can try there are:

  1. chura matar
  2. veg tehri
  3. gujiya
  4. malpua
  5. rabdi
  6. banarasi style dum aloo

this mathura ke aloo recipe is so easy to make and you just need some spices and potatoes. the curry is thin and no onions, tomatoes or garlic are used. the addition of the spices give a lot of flavor and taste to the curry. mathura ke dubki wale aloo is best had with pooris or luchis or kachoris.

in mathura this aloo curry is served with khasta khachoris (flaky fried bread stuffed with spiced black gram filling) along with jalebis. i had seen this recipe in a cookbook – “cuisine – food heritage of india” by vimla patil. i had purchased this book in my college years and never went about to making this recipe. the name of the recipe itself caught my attention then. well this book has some good regional indian recipes.

so for the first time, i made this recipe adapting to suits our tastes from this cookbook. the result was damn good spiced potato curry which went very well with the luchi i had made.

the combination of potatoes and pooris is a favorite at home. so no wonder, all the luchis and the potato curry got over in no time. this recipe is particularly good, as apart from green chilies, you don’t need to chop anything. saves time and makes for a wholesome weekend breakfast.

  • Dassana, all your recipes are amazing. I refer to them on a daily basis. I know a little planning is required as some of these recipes require prep work the night before. Could you share a post on making a weekly meal plan based on your recipes? Are you able to share your personal meal plan?
