hing jeera aloo recipe

its no surprise that the carb loaded potatoes is a favorite at home. so again no surprise, i have posted so many potato recipes. here comes one more 🙂

this uttar pradesh style hing jeera aloo is a recipe which i make at times to go along with chapatis. the dish is a bit spicy and tangy. like i said before, easy to prepare with some boiled potatoes and spices. the recipe is dry, so goes well with pooris or chapatis or as a side dish with dal or a curry. i have also shared a jeera aloo recipe before.

i wanted to post a sweet recipe at the beginning of the new year, but posting this one as i had already worked on the pics before. hope you had a lovely start to your new year.

hing jeera aloo is best served with pooris and then with rotis or parathas or as a side dish with dal-rice combo.

  3. This was delicious! I actually did not boil the potatoes 1st. I just peeled and chopped and threw in pan when it was time. Takes a bit longer but if potatoes are not super thick chopped, they will cook in no time with just the steam from the lid on. Stirring occasionlly.
    I wish had chopped more potatoes as it turned out VERY TASTY!! Thanks to u I have a new aloo dish. Hugs!
