hing jeera aloo recipe with step by step photos – one easy no onion no garlic potato recipe from the north indian cuisine.

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.

  • Hello,
    wow, that looks delicious. This is one of my favorite recipe, it is like comfort food :)
    thanks for sharing a wonderful recipe..
    could you tell me which camera do you use for your blog

  • Hi !!!
    I am a regular visitor to your website. I just love the photos of the food you prepare (mainly why i prefer this over other sites). Also step by step pics helps a lot :)
    I prepared this above recipe yesterday with adding gobi to it, it came out very well.
    I stay in Germany and have some problems with preparing some recipes.
    Hope you dont mind me bugging you with questions :)
    Thanks a lot :)

    • welcome veena. glad to read your motivating feedback. yes, please feel free to ask queries about recipes posted. i try my best to answer all queries as soon as possible. happy cooking.

      • Dear Amit Dassana,

        I am so glad to see that my comment would motivate you. I can sincerely try for this all time :) Being a vegetarian, following the path of being as close to nature as possible and spreading the knowledge around is a noble job(read it in your bio). We are vegetarians too and we too believe in similar ideology. Keep up the good job, both of you :)

        Dear Amit,
        I am referring to you since you are the web guy here. Could you please add a subscription tag here or update the conversation tag with a feature where I can receive notification via email when my comment is replied by you. It is easier that way. It's just the engineer in me who wants this :P A girl in me is happy with the site anyway :)

        Dear Dassana,
        We are recently 2 year old wed couple. So I try to cook many new dishes (inspired by your site sometimes) and it brings great joy. Thanks for being part of our lives :)
        There are couple of things which are difficult to follow here.
        1) Any typical dosa batter or idli batter is difficult to prepare in this weather (Its is snowing here) We miss it a lot. Eating bread everyday is not good :(
        2) I tried doing paneer (following recipe in your site) but it dint come up well. Probably because of the kind of milk we get here (I had prepared rasgulla back in India. So I have some idea)

        Please let me know where can I post these queries. As it is not concerning with the recipe anymore ! :)

        • thanks veena for your encouraging feedback. we had this option of notification via email when the comment is replied. but few subscribers didn't like it... because everytime someone will comment on that post they will get a notification with the comment on their email. so we discontinued it.
          if not on holidays, then we usually reply the comment in 1-2 days time.

          for the idli batter, keep it near a warm place like a heater and wrap it up in a warm shawl or blanket. you can also preheat your oven to 70 to 80 degree celsius for 15 minutes. switch off the oven and then place the batter inside the oven. close the oven door. if you have lights in the oven you can keep the lights on.

          may be you are right. paneer didn't turn out well because of quality of milk.
          the unrelevant queries you can post in any recipe post.

          P.S. loved reading that you follow vegetarianism and support it.
          regards
          dassana and amit

  • good one...i tried it...after everyone had it in the afternoon, i smashed it well and made aalu parata with da same for dinner...it was just yummy...thanx

  • I am so glad I found this website. All of your recipes have turned out so great. I just recently got married and had minor experience in making daal/sabji's. My husband was utterly surprised at how well everything tatted. Thank you once again!

  • I m so glad i found you.. i regularly follow you and my weekend receipes aee always inspired by u.. i love your website... i made ths hing aloo jeera and it trurned out to be so tasty.. thanks ans keep goin..

  • I don't know anything about cooking and my grandma doesn't eat onion n garlic. So I tried this one and it turned out really well. I didn't had coriander leaves so I added kasori methi and 1 tbsp ghee at the end instead of that. It has become grandma's favorite aalu sabji. Thank you so much!!

    • welcome juhi. glad to know this. thanks for sharing your positive feedback and variation.

  • hello ma'am....i wanted to ask u dat how many whistles should the potatoes get....as my steamer has broken down...

  • 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!

    • pleased to know this thank you jennifer for your positive feedback :) and nice twist to the recipe.

  • This was really delicious. My family loved it. Thanks for sharing the step by step recipes, really useful.
