Often times when I’d visit the temple, Aloo Poori (potatoes and deep fried bread) was offered as prasad (a religious vegetarian offering in both Hinduism and Sikhism). I always looked forward to the potato curry which was prepared without garlic and onions. For the longest time, I referred to this Aloo ki Subzi as Mandir wale Aloo or Gurudwara wale Aloo or Poori wali Aloo ki Subzi. There are various names for this dish, however I call it Aloo Rasedar which is prepared in a tomato ginger gravy.

This subzi right here is one of my favorites and is Indian comfort food, especially with poori. The flavor is in the carom seeds and hing which are the two key ingredients in this dish, hence do not omit. It’s the perfect subzi to make when you’re observing a fast, usually around Navratri. Consume this delectable subzi with poori, roti, or naan.

      Such a brilliant recipe! Easy to make and is ready within 20 minutes. Love love love that it doesn’t have garlic and onion. Shows that you don’t need to add garlic and onion for all recipes and yet makes the food taste delicious. This is definitely my go to recipe and a family favorite. Tastes so good with roti or puri 😊
