Jeera Ajwaini Aloo


Jeera Ajwani Aloo is a tasty and flavourful side dish to serve with Roti and Rice. Usually in most of the houses, either cumin/jeera or ajwani seeds / carom is used as tadka for side dish, but I learnt this simple yet flavourful recipe from one of my co-blogger Jolly Makker's page. I had bookmarked this recipe long back and waiting for the right time to prepare. Luckily for the Recipe Swap Challenge event, I was paired with Jolly Makker who blogs at jollyhomemaderecipes.com. Recipe swap challenge is an interesting event hosted by two the lovely bloggers Vidya Narayan and Jolly Makkar. The concept of the theme was to recreate the recipe from our partner's webpage.


So here is the delicious potato recipe from my partner Jolly's page. The potato tasted so delicious and the addition of ajwain gave a refreshing taste to the dish. Thanks Jolly for posting such a delicious recipe on your page.

Ingredients :

3 Potatoes, Cut into desired shape 
1 1/2 Tbsp Oil 
2 Tsp Cumin seeds / Jeera 
2 Tsp Ajwain seeds
1 Tsp Coriander powder 
1/2 Tsp Chilli powder 
1/4 Tsp Garam masala powder 
Salt to taste 
Coriander leaves, finely chopped 

Method :

Heat oil in a pan and add ajwain seeds followed by cumin seeds. Fry it in a low flame.

Now add coriander powder followed by chilli powder and fry without burning the masala powders.

Now add the potato pieces and mix well.

Add the required quantity of salt and little water.

Toss well, cover and cook until the potatoes get cooked.

Add garam masala powder and the chopped coriander leaves to the potato and cook until it turns dry.

Serve hot.

  2. This recipe is for keeps and looks so delicious on that small mountain of rice. I love eating sabzis with rice a lot and potatoes are one of them. As I mentioned in the group earlier, this is one of those recipes that might look so simple but will never go out of style. Good choice Priya.
