Vrat Jeera Aloo

Vrat Jeera AlooThere is just one week left for Navratri and today I am sharing a super easy and flavorful recipe- Vrat Jeera Aloo. This recipe needs no introduction. Boiled and cubed potatoes are sauteed with cumin seeds and flavored with other spices. Jeera aloo or vrat ke aloo are usually paired with pooris to form a complete meal. These potatoes are cooked without onion and garlic and enjoyed during fasting times like Navratri , Mahashivratri and other Indian festivals.

Jeera aloo are seasoned with Sendha namak also referred to as Vrat salt (picture shown below). Regular salt is avoided during fasting period. Along with Sabudana tikki and Sabudana Khichdi this too is a the most relished fasting dish. Improvise this recipe by adding green chilies and fennel seeds (saunf). If you eat amchur masala (mango powder) during vrat then sprinkle these potatoes for a tangy and chatpata flavor.This Navratri try out this simple yet delicious recipe with Rajgiri poori/Amaranth ki poori and if you are fasting for one day or for days it will surely keep you full for the rest of your day.

This fasting season try other vrat recipes – Sabudana Ladoo, Vrat Rajgiria PuriSabudana UttapamKuttu and Singhare ke atte ki RotiSabudana KhichdiSabudana Vrat DosaSama ki Tikki or Sabudana Vada and more….

DISCLAIMER – If you do not consume a particular veggie or spice during Navratri , feel free to leave that out and follow your family vrat guidelines.

HAPPY NAVRATRI AND FASTING!!
