Aloo Sabji [The Potato Life Chose Me]

Dear Foodies & Friends,

Exams are right around the corner and I am FREAKING out! I’m still utterly clueless and confused about everything, so hopefully by some miracle (or two), and with several mugs of hot tea, things will fall into place. Hopefully. I’ve had to take on some additional responsibilities on campus, so I apologize for not replying to all your lovely comments. I have read each and every one of them โค and I can’t express how grateful I am for all your support. Once September the 1st rolls by you’ll all receive a reply. I promise.

For now, here’s the final recipe in my Rasam rice trio! Aloo Sabji (Potatoooes of course!) It’s been a while now, so just reminiscing about it is making my mouth water! These exams can’t get over fast enough, I tell you. Soon I’ll be back in my little faux kitchen โค

Beans poriyal

If you haven’t read my previous post on the most coconutty green beans, catch it here! I LOVE vegetables, and potatoes are high on my list of favorites. Aside from the few little oddballs (I love you guys too) in my life who aren’t fond of these scrumptious little tubers, the world loves potatoes! So this recipe is for all you happy folks out there. Enjoy and help spread the love for Indian food! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love potatoes too. I see that 2 tomatoes are included in the ingredients list but they’re not included in the directions. Typo??

        I use tomatoes and tomato products in my cooking but to eat raw tomatoes … I just can’t do it. I’ll be checking out your Indian recipes as my repertoire is still pretty narrow and I would like to add more lentil dishes to my table. I do pretty well with the ones I DO cook, I think. ๐Ÿ™‚
