Jeera Aloo Recipe / Jeera Aloo Sabzi Recipe

I love making potato poriyal for lunch. Believe it or not i never make the same potato recipe more than two times. Each time i flavour the potatoes differently and make it. I have shared so many versions of potato poriyal here, you can check out my all time favorite simple potato roast, chettinad potatoes, bombay potatoes, keralan potatoes, chukka potatoes, rajasthan potatoes, pepper potatoes, sambar potatoes and even many, you can check all my poriyal recipes here..

Even today i made potato roast and rasam. But this time i flavoured potatoes with cumin seeds / Jeera. Jeera and potatoes went really good together, i added some chopped garlic too and totally it was a flavourful dish. I made it little spicy because people in this house loves things extra spicy. But you can reduce the chilli powder as per your taste, remember that you are adding green chillies too..

I hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
