Hi friends,

Potato curry or aalo ki sabzi is quite a go to dish in India. Whenever I am in hurry or didn’t have much ingredients in my kitchen or didn’t feel like cooking this recipe is my savior. I first tried this curry in Agra (UP). There is it quite a commonly known as “dubki wale aalo ki sabzi” i.e potato in thin curry and generally serves with samosas & khasta kachoris. Strange is it!!

Aalo ki sabzi

Aalo ki sabzi can be prepared either dry form or with gravy depending on your taste. I usually prefer gravy form with parathas (flat bread). This recipe is quite an easy with very simple spices & potatoes.

Its a pure vegetarian recipe or can be called as sattvik as I have not used garlic & onion in this. This can be best enjoyed with puris , kachoris or parathas.
