Aloo Jeera (Stir fried potatoes in Cumin Seeds)
Aloo jeera is one of the simplest dishes. if you have boiled potatoes then it’s hardly 2 – 3 minutes job. What else we need when feeling lazy or in hurry and don’t know what to cook. The real and only dominating flavor comes from cumin seeds. Its such a quick dish and at the same time equally tasty. We use cumin seeds in greater quantity than regular dishes.
I don’t add any other spices than coriander powder and coriander leaves. So one of favorite dish for kids. Also this is no onion no garlic dish. In fasting days also you can make this dish. Only thing is remember to add rocksalt instead of regular salt.
This is a versatile and simple dish. Try this with jeera rice, tal tadka and jeera aloo. I love this combination. This also goes well with roti, paratha or poori. If you want to add red chilli powder you can do so but I have added only green chillies for spice factor.
