aloo tamatar sabzi for navratri fasting

potatoes are very friendly and handy vegetables for home cooks. they are good on their own or in company with other vegetables… be it with spinach, peas, carrots, fenugreek, beans, cauliflower, capsicum or tomatoes.

usually aloo tamatar sabzi is made to go with pooris and is often made for breakfast. but in that dish we use onions and garlic. since this dish was made for navratri fasting, i have spiced with cumin, red chilli powder and black pepper powder.

you can serve the aloo tamatar sabzi with vrat ki roti or singhare ke poori or rajgira paratha or rajgire ki poori. another potato dish on similar lines is vrat ke aloo.
