Aloo is an ingredient which is ubiquitous in the Indian cuisine. Batata Vada to Puchka, Aloo ke Paranthe to Masala Dosa, the humble tuber lends itself to countless recipes across the country. However, the Hing Jeere ke Aloo is a minimalist recipe which uses the subtle taste of spices to bring out the best in the vegetable.

Some of the most exquisite food preparations of the country feature just one or two major ingredients for a whole new edge of flavour and taste. This unique flavour and aroma that Indian spices impart to a dish can truly make for a sumptuous yet memorable preparation. This is exactly the idea which is behind this wonderful Hing Jeere ke Aloo recipe.
How To Make Hing Jeere Ke Aloo
To begin the preparation, start by preparing a paste made with a single tomato, ginger and green chilli. Grind this till smooth and keep aside. Next, heat oil in a pan and heat up Jeera and Hing till it starts to sputter. Mix in the prepared tomato paste and let it cook for a few minutes. Now, sprinkle the remaining spices such as coriander powder, red chilli powder, and turmeric powder. Sautee for two minutes, then add the diced, boiled potatoes. Add salt to the dish and let it cook for 5 minutes at least. Squeeze fresh lemon juice and garnish with coriander leaves. Serve the dish hot and fresh!
