Jeera Aloo Recipe

Today I want to share a quick and easy recipe, which is for a special occasion but it is suitable for bachelor or people who are busy and don’t find time to cooking all those exotic meals at home.

Jeera Aloo is a simple and quick meal prepared especially during Navratri. Some of my readers asked me to prepare some recipes for Navratri So I decided to prepare a simple and easy way to make this Jeera aloo.

It is healthy and filled with a yummy flavour of cumin seeds which enhances the taste of this veggie. I have also prepared Lauki ki Barfi for Navratri, you can also make this for your vrat. I have lots of recipes related to this Vrat (Fast), will update one by one. Follow my easy recipe with step by step pictures.
