Vrat wale aloo or vrat ke rasewale aloo recipe. Nothing fancy but a simple and basic dish prepared in every household during fasting period. Boiled and cubed potatoes are combined with freshly grated tomatoes and flavored with spices. Usually paired up with Kuttu and Singhare ke atte ki Poori to make a complete meal. Along with sabudana, sawa ke chawal and amaranth flour (rajgira flour) this combination is the most relished one.
Ready in 30 minutes this dish can be eaten as a brunch or a regular meal. Popular among the kids, tari wale aloo or rasedaar aloo is always accompanied with regular pooris or Missi puri. Once boiled potatoes are added to the cooked gravy, add water accordingly – depending on how thick you prefer your gravy to be.

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.
