Recipe of the Week: Aloo ki Sabji aka Dry Potato Curry

My simple and lazy Aloo ki Sabji aka Dry Potato Curry has become a big demand in my family and friend’s circle. Everyone either wants the recipe or wants me to make it for them. My neighbor, too loves my potato sabji and has asked me to post the recipe on my blog for her. So, this is for my dear, V and you sister-in-law.

Here’s what you need:

  • 4-5 medium/large potatoes – washed, peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 tsp jeera (cumin)
  • 1 tsp saunf (fennel)
  • 1 tsp methre (fenugreek seeds)
  • 1/2 tsp ajwain (carom seeds)
  • 1 tsp haldi (turmeric powder)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2-3 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp dhaniya powder (coriander powder)
  • 1-2 tbsp oil
  • 1-2 tsp dried fenugreek leafs

Here’s what you do:

Heat oil in large wok over medium heat. Add methre and let sizzle until dark brown, add ajwain, saunf and jeera until nicely browned. Add potatoes and let cook for 2-3 minutes. Add salt, curry powder, garam masala, dhaniya powder, haldi and mix well so that all the potatoes are nicely coated with the spices. Let cook for 2-3 minutes, then rub dried fenugreek leafs between hands, so to completely crush them and add to potatoes. Mix all ingredients well, reduce heat to the lowest and cover. Let steam for 10-12 minutes or until potatoes are completely cooked. Enjoy with roti and yogurt!
