Aloo Tari

Aloo Tari

es its aloo tari this time. We all love potato, yes I know that. How much ever we try to avoid potato (okie few of us do try to avoid) but it's never really possible I guess. Most of the cuisines all over world use potato and in every Indian household must have potato at home are some of the unspoken rules :-).

So, coming back to the aloo tari, this is one of those sabji which I'm eating from my childhood. The best thing is, it's good for breakfast, lunch, dinner, lunch box or party. Easy to make and tasty to eat. So here is the recipe:


Potato - 2 large boiled
Onion - 1 large chopped
Tomato - 1 large chopped
Redchilli powder - 3tps
Turmeric - 1/2 tps
Salt - to taste
Cumin seeds - 1/2tps
Oil - 3 tbs
Water - 1-2 cup


1. Boil potatoes, remove the skin and cut in cubes. (Mash few cubes)
2. In a pan heat oil, add cumin seeds & fry until splutters.
3. Add onion and saute it, after this add tomato and cook for 2mins.
4. Add turmeric and red chilli powder, salt mix everything and cook for 2 mins with lid on.
5. Add 1 to 2 cup of water (depending on cup size) and bring it to boil.
6. Add the potatoes now and mix well. Cook for 5mins with lid on.
7. Gravy should NOT be thick but watery. It goes well with roti/paratha.
