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 a 2 – 3 minutes job. What else we need when feeling lazy or in a hurry and don’t know what to cook.
The real and only dominating flavor comes from cumin seeds. It’s 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 the favorite dishes for kids. Also, this is no onion no garlic dish. In fasting days also you can make this dish. Only thing is to remember to add rock salt instead of regular salt.
I have added finely chopped green chillies to make it spicy. So basic ingredients are: potatoes, salt, cumin seeds, green chillies, coriander powder, coriander leaves. I would say coriander powder is optional too. You can try this with lots of fresh coriander leaves also.
This is a versatile and simple dish. Try this combination of jeera rice, dal tadka, and jeera aloo. I love this combination. I have some nostalgic memories with this combo. This also goes well with roti, paratha or poori. If you want to add red chili powder you can do so but I have added only green chilies to spice it up.
