Aloo ki Sabzi:- How to make haadi wale Aloo Tamatar ki Sabzi – Potato Curry

Aloo Tamatar Ki sabzi

Aloo ki sabzi or subzi is made in many ways and this Aloo ki sabzi recipe is very special as it is normally made in North Indian marriages. I learned this sabzi from a halwaii ( cook who make food in marriages) and just love it.Aloo  ki sabzi (or curry) is very popular in North Indian homes and it goes very well with chapati, parathas and especially with pooris. This is no onion and garlic recipe so I often make it on fasting days with poori. It is made in many ways, but I just love this version the most. It’s super delicious as it has perfect spices and flavors. Aloo ki sabzi is very quick to make if you have boiled potatoes handy. To change the taste you can also add some boiled green peas or chola or kala chana. Add them before adding potatoes and cook them for a while. Then add potatoes and follow the recipe. This sabzi does not need much spices. It is made with basic spices easily available at home. So wherever you are planning to make aloo  ki sabzi do try this recipe and I am sure you will love it.

Shilpi’s Quick Tricks
  • Boil potatoes ahead of time and cool them before adding to tomato gravy. If you add hot potatoes they will become too mushy and sabzi will not taste good.
  • Here I have used the tomatoes which are not very sour. If you think your tomatoes are very soup decrease the quantity of tomatoes.
  • It is very important to cook the tomatoes in spices till oil is separated otherwise you can feel the smell of tomatoes in sabzi.
  • After sabzi is completely cooked smash 2 -3 pieces of potatoes with spatula. This will give thickness and taste to the gravy.
  • I have added Kashmiri lal mirch to give some color. If you do not like it you can skip it.
  • You can make this sabzi semi dry or jhol (runny) according to your choice.
