Spicy Tangy Garlic Potato, Lehsun wale aloo ki sabzi,

Potatoes seem to be a safer bet when you have nothing else in the refrigerator to cook. With garlic and potatoes usually available at home I cook lehsun aloo ki sabzi or garlic potato.

It is easy, simple and quick to prepare and the best part is no one says no to this version of aloo ki sabzi. I usually pair it with poori/puri when eating at home or with parathas for lunchbox/tiffin. It also serves as a good side dish along with dal chawal for a quick dinner.

It is spicy, tangy and has full of garlic flavour along with other spices which makes it delicious. Garlic potato ki sabzi is also a good option if you have sudden guests coming over for lunch or dinner.

Food being an integral part of Indian train journeys this aloo ki sabzi reminds me of my train journeys. Whenever we go for a long journey in the train, we pack this aloo ki sabzi along with lots of puri and other accompaniments to enjoy the long route while eating homemade food and lots of talks and reading along the way. Which is your favourite train memory with food?

How to Prepare for Lehsun aloo ki sabzi –

Peel, wash and cut potatoes into wedges. In a mixing bowl add water and salt, add the cut potatoes into a bowl.

Make sure the potatoes are dipped in water completely. This helps in releasing starch of the potatoes in water which makes it crispier. It also enhances the taste as potatoes absorbs the salt.

This procedure helps potatoes to not turn black or get oxidized.

Things to keep in mind while aloo ki sabzi –

1. After peeling and cutting, wash potatoes 4-5 times rubbing in between hands. This will help remove excess starch making it crispier.
2. Cooking on a low flame ensures even cooking. This will also get a nice crisp layer on potatoes.
3. Add spices when potatoes are half-cooked, else spices might burn.
4. Add lime juice after switching off the flame, else it might turn bitter.
5. You can also add lots of fresh coriander at the end to add freshness.
