Jeera Wale Aloo (Cumin Potato Sabji)

Have you tried jeera aloo sabji (potato cooked with 3 different types of cumin) at an event and could not replicate the recipe at home? Here your chance to make at home using this easy to follow recipe with simple ingredients from your pantry.

I was craving to make this sabji for long time and when I saw chef Renveer Brar posted the video, I couldn’t hold back. We always has tones of potatoes in my house and Indian kitchen is never without jeera (cumin). You must have figured out the meaning of this dish, it’s potatoes cooked in tons of cumin. Potatoes and cumin is match made in heaven, you can never go wrong combining these 2. I use potatoes in appetizer to main to dessert. If you type potato in my website search bar, you will find many recipes. We also use cumin in many of our spice blends and daily in our sabjis and daals. I found everything in my pantry to prepare this sabji.

You can serve this for appetizer, provide the toothpick so guest can help themselves. You can also serve this on side with any daal soup, roti and rice. We love this with methi thepla (masala roti). The flavour of the cumin is so strong in this sabji. You can get different texture of cumin because we used whole, crushed and powder cumin. If you are vegan, you can just use oil instead of ghee. If you are serving this to kids, avoid chilies. If you don’t have amchur (dry mango) powder, you can squeeze lemon juice.

This sabji is absolutely delicious and bursting with flavours of cumin and coriander.

Hope you will give it a try!
