Dahi Aloo Recipe| Fasting Recipe | Vrat Recipe

This is one of the most popular fasting or vrat recipe during Navratri. Dahi aloo or dahi wale aloo sabzi is basically a potato dish which is cooked in curd as gravy and other spice mix.

This is a popular dish in North India especially as Navratri is one of the major festival in North India where many people observe fast for 9 consecutive days. This is not easy to fast for 9 days. There are few food option available during these 9 days. Potato is one of those vegetable which is allowed to consume on such days.

So this is one of my ultimate dish on fasting days. You can make this as a combo meal with kuttu or singhada puri, sama chawal khichdi. This infact completes the menu and keeps you full. Also it’s tangy, spicy and aromatic. So you will not crave for any outside food too.

Read other vrat recipes on blog: Kuttu Chips, Kuttu Aloo Tikki, Aloo Jeera, Aloo Tomato, Sama Chalwal Khichdi, Sama Chawal Dosa, Sabudana Khichdi, Sabudana Vada. In sweet dish try my vrat special Sabudana Kheer, Aloo Halwa, Paneer Kheer, Fruits Raita, Singhade ki Burfi, Lauki Launj (halwa).

Dahi Aloo

If you are making on normal days, there is not much difference to the recipe in fact. For fasting or vrat recipe, add vrat namak or sendha namak (rock salt) which is allowed to eat on fasting days. You can’t consume regular salt if you are observing fast on any day.

Kuttu and Aloo Patties for Fasting Recipe

Kuttu and Aloo Tikki

Kuttu and Aloo Patties for Fasting Recipe

Kuttu Tikki / Kuttu and aloo patties is one of my favorite fasting dish. This is crispy and delicious in taste so you will not feel like fasting at all. Kuttu or buckwheat flour is mixed with boiled potatoes to make these patty or tikki. Combine with Dahi Aloo or Aloo Tomato to make a complete meal for your fasting day menu.

In Indian tradition and culture there are many festivals and religious occasions when people observe fast for deities and more over for their belief. Navratra/ Navratri is one of the most important festive occasion and in this festival we do fasting of 9 days continuously.

Food for Navratri

But thank God there are some option of food we can consume. These are called as Falahar or Farari Bhoj. And in these falahar dishes many flours (no grain) and vegetables are restricted like onion, garlic and many more. In fact there are limited vegetables and flour which we can eat during this vrat or fasting.

Also this choice of vegetable is different for different families or say places. So you need to stick to your family rules for selecting vegetables. Like in my home we can eat only potatoes, no tomato, no green chillies, no coriander. So we do that way. In place of green chilli, we add black pepper powder. That is bit difficult when you have only one option left. But again it matters with our belief system. No hard and fast rule.

Buckwheat flour Patty

Potatoes are more common and makes the dish more yummy. I love fasting recipes more than regular ones. Most commonly we use Buckwheat Flour (Kuttu), Water Chestnut (Singhara), Sagoo (tapioca pearl), Rajgira (Amaranth) for binding. You can make fritters, Poori, Paratha from these flours as well. They are versatile and also makes a great dish. This is also great and healthy food for kids. As it gives a different taste, kids also love such dish.

Kuttu and Aloo Tikki

These tikki or patties are too easy to prepare. Only you need boiled and cooled potatoes. Then add any of the flour, rock salt, green chilli (if you eat).

North Indian Style Aloo Tomato Curry For Fasting Recipe

Aloo Tomato

Aloo Tomato Curry (Farali Vrat Recipe)

This North Indian Style Aloo Tomato Curry is one easy fasting recipe. This is simple and takes 10 minutes to prepare if you have boiled potatoes. You can also pressure cook them for 2 whistles if you don’t have boiled potatoes. But I like to boil the potatoes first and then adding them to the gravy. This dish has no onion and no garlic and hence one fasting food. This is a popular everyday dish in North India.

I love this no onion no garlic aloo tomato curry even on regular days. But when you will cook on regular day, the best part is that extra punch of flavor from asafoetida or hing. If you eat curry leaves add to the curry. In case you don’t eat any of the ingredient then you can skip that. Also use rock salt only for fasting food preparation as you can’t take regular salt.

This curry goes well with kuttu ki puri, singhade ki puri, sama rice pulao. I also make dahi aloo to accompany my other farali puri or rice.
