Upvasachi Batata Bhaji (Spicy Potato Stir-fry For Fasting)

Very nice and tasty variation for regular potato dish. You can call this "Vrat ka jeera aloo"  

  • Potato, boiled, peeled - 2 large
  • Pure ghee or oil- 2 tbsp
  • Cumin seeds- 2 tsp
  • Green Chilies- 2 to 3
  • Sugar- ½ tsp (optional)
  • Salt to taste
  • Peanut crush or scrapped fresh coconut- ¼ cup (optional)

  • Cut potato into small cubes. Cut chilies or crush with cumin seeds.
  • Heat ghee in the pan, add cumin seeds and chopped green chilies. 
  • Add potato cubes. Stir on medium heat.
  • Add salt and sugar. (If you want to add peanut crush or scrapped fresh coconut, add this stage.) Mix well.
  • Stir well and cover with lid, let it cook for 2-3 minutes. 
  • Serve hot with vrat ki roti (varichi bhakari) or rajgira puri or shigada puri or samake chaval (varicha bhat). This aloo sabzi tastes fabulous with yogurt. 

You may make this type of bhaji/sabji with boiled (sweet potato, raw banana, yam/suran, arabi/alukudi and other root vegetables). Boil raw banana without peeling.
