Simple aloo sabzi (potato vegetable)

Today being the 6th day of Navratri, I am posting one more dish suitable for fasting. My mother-in law makes this simple potato dish every day during fasting, except she doesn’t add tomatoes. If you prefer your dish without tomatoes as well, go ahead and skip them.
Oh btw before I forget, I am now a member of Petitchef, a site with many nice recipes and blogs. Do check it out some time


- 3 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
- 1 Tbsp. Ghee
- 1 Tsp. Cumin seeds
- 1-inch piece ginger, finely chopped
- ½ Tsp. Coriander powder
- 1 Tsp. Cumin powder
- Juice of ½ lemon
- Salt or sindalu salt to taste
- 2 Tbsp. chopped coriander leaves


Heat ghee in a pot and add the cumin seeds. When they splutter, add the tomatoes, salt, coriander powder and cumin powder. Mix well and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the potatoes along with 3-4 Tbsp. water. Cover and cook till potatoes are soft. Stir couple of times in between to prevent potatoes from sticking to bottom. Add coriander leaves and lemon juice. Mix and serve.
