And you don’t need to make this potato curry recipe on any fasting occasion. You can make this sabzi and serve with pooris or chappatis any time. There are many variations of vrat ke aloo.

Sharing the way I make this Vrat wale aloo sabzi at home. the boiled potatoes are crumbled and added to sauted tomatoes-spice mixture. Simmered for some minutes and then served hot with a garnish of coriander leaves. This aloo recipe is light and not heavily spiced. Just to add a bit of spice and heat, green chilies are used, which you can easily skip.

Usually the fasting recipes are easier to make and does not demand much preparation. You can make many fasting or Vrat recipes using aloo like:

  1. Dahi aloo
  2. Vrat ki aloo chaat
  3. Falahari aloo vada recipe
  4. Aloo jeera recipe for vrat
  5. Aloo tamatar sabzi recipe

These vrat wale aloo goes well with Kuttu ki poori or Kuttu roti or Rajgire ki poori or Rajgira paratha. I served them with Singhare ke atta ki poori (pooris made from water chestnut flour) and Kala chana sundal (black chickpea sundal).
