Aloo Tamatar Ki Sabzi is a simple, comforting and easy to make dish which is regularly cooked in North Indian households. It is made by cooking potatoes in a simple tomato curry. It is not only flavorful and delicious, but it is also a quick fix solution when short of time or when short of vegetables in the kitchen.

Aloo Tamatar Ki Sabzi can truly claim to be one of the most popular curries of North India and the best part of it is that it goes very well with a variety of Indian breads. As with any spicy potato dish, the best fit to this delicious Sabji is of course Plain Pooris, Bedmi Pooris, Daal Poori, Masala Poori etc. Aloo Tamatar ki Sabzi is enjoyed equally well with Paratha or Roti/Chapatis. This Sabzi can also be served with plain steamed rice.

Another good thing about this dish is that you can make the curry of the desired consistency as per your preference. This curry is a common part of food served in Indian marriages and ceremonies. This recipe is also common during Navratras as it has no onion and garlic.

Step By Step Instructions With Photos for Aloo Tamatar Ki Sabzi Recipe

  • Heat some oil in a small pressure cooker (optionally, you can also use a pan with a lid if you are using boiled potatoes). Add Mustard seeds (Rai) to the cooker. When they start to crackle, add Cumin Seeds (Jeera). Fry the Cumin Seeds for a few seconds till they start to splutter. Add a pinch of Asafoetida (Hing).

  • Turn the flame to low and add 1/2 teaspoon Turmeric Powder (Haldi), 1/2 Teaspoon Red Chilli Powder and 1/2 Teaspoon Coriander Powder (Dhania Powder). Make sure that the flame is low as these spices will otherwise get burnt in hot oil. Also add a pinch of Garam Masala.

  • Also add a few Curry Leaves (Curry Patta) along with finely chopped pieces of Ginger (Adrak) and Green Chilies (Hari Mirch).

  • Now add chopped pieces of Tomato or tomato puree.

  • Sauté till the tomato pieces become soft and you can see oil leaving the sides.

  • Add chopped potatoes (about one inch size) followed by 1 1/2 cup or 1 Glass of water. Mix well and cook till you get one whistle of pressure cooker. Allow some time to cool so that steam escapes from the pressure cooker and the lid can be safely opened.

  • Add 1/4 Teaspoon Dried Fenugreek Leaves (Kasuri Methi) and also garnish with fresh Coriander Leaves (Hara Dhaniya). Optionally a teaspoon of milk cream can be added to give a rich look to the curry. Aloo Tamatar Ki Sabzi is ready. Serve it hot with Roti, Paratha or Pooris.
