Jeera Aloo

      Jeera - Cumin seed - is one of the most widely used spices in India and also around the world. Personally, it is one of my favorite spice because of its distinctive flavor and aroma. You will find the use of Cumin seeds in almost all of my recipes.

Today, we have my personal favorite Potato - Cumin vegetable dish. It is usually served with a flatbread like Roti, paratha etc. I absolutely love having it with Methi Thepla.

  • 4 medium boiled Potatoes
  • 3 tbsp Cumin Seeds
  • 1 tbsp Green Chili Paste
  • 2 tsp Oil
  • pinch of Asafoetida
  • 2 tsp ground Black Pepper
  • 2 tsp Lemon Juice
  • Salt to taste
  • Cilantro for garnish
  • Dice the boiled potatoes and keep it aside.
  • Heat the oil in the pan. Add Asafoetida and Cumin seeds to it
  • Once the seeds begin to crackle, add the chili paste and saute it for a minute
  • Now add the potatoes and mix it well
  • Then add the salt, black pepper and lemon juice and mix it
  • Cook for about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the cilantro and mix it properly
  • Serve hot and enjoy
