Jeera Aloo


Jeera Aloo, or Aloo Jeera Nava-K's style. Yes. Of course. I have my style to my cooking. Proud Nava K. Why not? After all, cooking is also about your own style right? Tell me about it. That's why, most probably you would noticed that my Jeera Aloo is different and a stand out amongst the rest. What is Jeera Aloo by the way if you still can't comprehend? Basically, potatoes stir fried alongside cumin (Jeera Rice) and of course, we need the spicy beat from chillies as well. Potatoes on the whole by the way, as I have repeated myself donkey times (Sukhi Aloo Sabzi, Tari Wale Aloo, Chilli Aloo, Dum Aloo & Aloo Gobi). Just mention potatoes and you yourself will know what I mean. So many dishes out of potatoes (Aloo Gosht, Navaratan Korma, Egg Potato Curry, Indian Potato Balls, Baked Cheesy Potatoes & Bonda).  What about Jeera Aloo? Simplicity and simplest. Loud aroma of cumin seeds, garam masala, coriander leaves and a dry style Jeera Aloo.


Ingredients
3 medium size potatoes (simmer till tender, cool down, remove skin and cut into chunks)
1 tbsp butter (or oil)
4 dried red chillies - cut into 2 or 3 pieces
4 shallots - chopped
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/4 tsp garam masala 
3 sprigs coriander leaves - slice.
Salt for taste

Method
Heat butter, add shallots, dried chillies, mustard and cumin seeds.
Stir for 1 minute or 2.
Add potatoes, coriander leaves and garam masala.
Season with salt.
Quickly stir all together over high heat.
Dish out and serve.
