Jeera Aloo is a typical vegetarian Indian dish which is often served as a side dish and normally goes well with hot puris, chapatti, roti or dal. Its main ingredients are potatoes, cumin seeds and Indian spices. Other ingredients are red chili powder, ginger, coriander powder, curry leaves, vegetable oil and salt.

you just need to boil some potatoes first and then saute them with spices. If you already have boiled potatoes, then making jeera aloo becomes very quick.

Boil or steam potatoes along with ½ teaspoon salt, till they are cooked well. When the potatoes cool down or become warm, then peel them and chop in small cubes.

In a pan, heat 3 tablespoons oil. Let the oil become hot. You can heat oil on medium flame. Add 2.5 teaspoons cumin seeds (jeera) and let them crackle in oil. Stir quickly as the cumin seeds will begin to crackle in oil quickly.

Once the cumin seeds crackle and change color, then add 2 to 3 finely chopped ginger. Add all the spices and mix very well. Then add the boiled potato cubes.

Saute the potatoes for 2 to 3 minutes on low to medium flame stirring often. Next add some chopped coriander leaves.
