Vrat ke jeera aloo recipe – simple, easy and a quick dish of sauteed boiled potatoes with cumin and green chillies.

Most of the Fasting recipes are very quick and easy to make. As many spices and herbs are not allowed during fasting days. Moreover you don’t have to chop onions, garlic etc. So fasting food is not only quicker to prepare but it is also easiest to digest. A good time to purify body-mind and get connected to your divine nature.

This jeera aloo dish is relatively very simple and quick to make. I have also posted another Aloo jeera recipe which you can make on normal days. Few more Fasting recipes made using aloo are:

  1. Aloo tamatar ki sabzi
  2. Vrat ke aloo
  3. Vrat ke dahi aloo
  4. Vrat ki aloo chaat
  5. Vrat ki aloo palak sabzi

Serve jeera aloo with kuttu ki paratha or rajgira ki poori or singhare ke atte ki poori. Plain curd will go very well as an accompaniment.

How to make vrat ke jeera aloo

1. Boil 3 to 4 medium potatoes (250 grams) in a pressure cooker or steamer till they are tender and cooked completely.

2. Peel and chop them.

3. In a pan or small kadai/wok heat ½ tbsp peanut oil or ghee. Since this is fasting food, I have used peanut oil. When not making for fasting you can use any oil. On a low flame, add 1.5 tsp cumin seeds and allow them to splutter and change their color.

10. Lastly switch off the flame and add ¼ to ½ tsp of lemon juice. Add as per your taste. Stir very well. You can also add dry mango powder (amchur) or dry pomegranate seeds powder (anardana powder) instead of lemon juice. some families use dry mango powder during fasting and some don’t.
