aloo jeera recipe

Aloo jeera is a simple no onion no garlic, a dry subji made with potato and simple ingredients but total burst of flavours. Step by step pictures recipe.

I had seen this recipe many times and think it is very popular too. Never tried this way since I make it with south Indian flavours mostly. But I know it would turn out really good as we too cook almost with similar spices for puri in gravy form. If it is done in the right way, it’s the most tastiest. Many have wrong assumption about this combo due to their bad experience in restaurant or tried themselves because of poor balance of spice. Trust me, sometimes simple is best. This is tastes really good with loads of flavour. Do try it out.
