Aloo ki Bhujia

My mum’s simple yet delicious recipe that never fails ❤


Potatoes – 6/7 cut in small squares or round shape (your choice)

Tomatoes – 4 chopped

Cumin seeds – 1 tsp

Kalonji (Nigella seeds) – 1/2 tsp

Salt – 1 tsp or as per your taste

Red chilli powder – 1 tsp

Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp

Green chillies – 2 chopped

Dry methi – 1 tsp heaped


Heat oil in a pan. Add cumin and Kalonji. Wait for them to sizzle, then add in the potatoes. Fry them for 4/5 mins. Add the spices. Cook for few more minutes. Add splash of water if needed.

Then, add the chopped tomatoes. Keep stirring vigorously till oil separates. Add 1/2 glass of water, cover with the lid and cook on low heat till potatoes are well cooked.

Once the potatoes are cooked, add in the chillies, methi and coriander leaves.

You can add water if you want more gravy!

Enjoy 🙂
