Aloo tamatar sabzi Recipe with step by step photos – potato tomato curry made without onion-garlic and heavy ingredients or spices. This is a very easy and simple aloo tamatar sabzi which you can make for Navratri fasting or any other fasting days.

aloo tamatar ki sabji served in a white bowl with pooris on a white plate kept on the top left side.

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.

    PS. Have you ever used Quorn pronounced kworn) – soya pieces/or mince to make curries. It is 100% veggie. Would love to know and try please.
    Thanks again5 stars

    1. thanks ab. this recipe is basically meant for fasting when we skip onions and garlic. with onions and garlic too, the recipe will taste good. do try the other recipes too. i have never used quorn as in india, we don’t get these. we do get soy nuggets (which are soy pieces) and also granules. but i do not add them as the brand which makes these in india, does not manufacture it properly and a lot of additives etc are added.

  8. During this time,we as catholics fast for 40days.Tough period,cos we as a fam.chose to abstain fr meat.You’re recipes have really been helpful,thanks so much.5 stars
