Punjabi Aloo Jeera / Punjabi Jeera Aloo

   From this month Radhika's Very popular Blog Hop Wednesday entering in to the new version with simple rules and to a monthly event. Its really nice to meet more people and to know about their cooking styles and attitudes was interesting and we the blog hoppers really enjoying it. As of this month's schedule I am paired with Riddhima of Culinary Vibes. She was introduced to me thru this event only. She is new to this wonderful blogging world and shaping here blog with her style of yummy recipes. For Blog hop i tried her Punjabi Tadka - Aloo Jeera(dhaba style), as potatoes are our fav i couldn't skip this recipe and also its loaded with full n full of flavor. We loved it a lot, But i used oil, where as the traditional recipe is with ghee/butter. Now to the recipe..

  1. Potato/aloo    6 medium sized (i used red potatoes)
  2. Green chili    2 no.s (finely chopped)
  3. Cilantro   2 tbsp(finely chopped)
  4. Red chili powder    1/2 tsp
  5. Coriander powder    1 and 1/2 tbsp
  6. Cumin powder    1 and 1/2 tbsp
  7. turmeric powder   a generous pinch
  8. Garam masala powder   1/4 tsp
  9. Amchur powder    1/4 tsp
  10. Salt   to taste
  11. Oil   1 tbsp
  12. Cumin seeds   1/2 tsp

  • Parboil the potatoes and peel the skin,cut in to bite size pieces and keep ready.
  • Heat oil in pan, add cumin seeds and green chilies, wait till it splutter and add red chili, cmuin, coriander powder and let it sizzle and fry lightly.(take care not to burn them)

  • After that add par boiled n cut potato pieces n turmeric powder and enough salt, stir fry the potatoes with the masala until it coats well.
  • Cook covered for 2-3 minutes n keep stirring for every one minute.
  • Then add garam masala powder and amchur powder and mix well and roast the potatoes well.
  • Lastly add some cilantro and give a nice stir.
  • That's it...spicy and flavorful Aloo Jeera is ready. Enjoy Hot with rotis/Parathas.

Instead of store bough cumin powder, you can dry roast about 2 tbsp cumin seeds, powder it and add it to the recipe for more flavorful potatoes.
If u don't have amchur powder, lastly add 1/2 tsp of fresh lemon juice .
