Aloo ki Sabji for Fast | Potato Curry Recipe

What is aloo ki sabji for fast?

Potato curry prepared in a tomato base, without onion, garlic and much spices; sing sedha namak or salt for fasting is aloo ki sabji for fasts. It is mildly spiced yet totally delicious. Fasting norms differ for everyone. Some ingredients may be consumed by one, but may not be consumed by someone else. For instance, my mother doesn’t eat tomatoes during fasts. She was surprised to see me posting a recipe for fast with tomatoes in it. But then I told her that the aloo ki sabji without tomatoes is there on the blog. So I wanted to post a variation for those who consume tomatoes during fasts.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Aloo Tamatar ki Sabji

Aloo is such a crowd-pleaser. Potato recipes are for everyone and every occasion. Aloo is used in so many recipes. Be it snacks such as aloo chaat or aloo tikki, bread such as aloo puri, gravies as aloo matar, aloo tamatar, or side dishes such as aloo gobhi, aloo methi, etc. Especially during fasts, aloo is used in so many ways. One of which is this aloo tamatar ki sabji. Here is all you need for this.

Potatoes/Aloo: Generally boiled potatoes are used to make aloo ki sabji. However, in this recipe, the chopped potatoes have been cooked in tomatoes with spices in a pressure cooker.

Tomatoes: The Less tangy variety of tomatoes have been used for this recipe. Further, I have used tomatoes in both forms, i.e. 2 tomatoes have been pureed and 1 has been chopped and used.

Spices: Not many, just a handful of most regular spices have been used i.e. red chilli powder, turmeric powder, and the fasting salt.

Flavors: I have added green chilies to flavor the dish. You can also add in ginger if you eat ginger during fasts.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
