Slow Cooked Jeera Aalu/potato stir fry

Jeera Aalu is supposed to a Dhaba comfort food. Low maintenance, super easy to put together and hardly anything can go wring with this one. The version I love, has crispy edges and a pillow-y center. Oh it is to die for.

You shall need:

3 medium Size… Potatoes (Washed, peeled and cut in equal size pieces)

2 … green chillies (Slit in the center)

2 tsp… Oil

1 tsp… Jeera/Cumin seeds

2 tsp… Dhaniya powder/coriander powder

2 tsp… Jeera powder/roaster cumin powder

1 tsp… Amchoor powder/Dry mango Powder (Optional)

Salt to taste

Method:

  • In a Kadhai/wok, heat the oil.
  • Add the cumin seeds and green chillies.
  • Reduce the heat for medium-low.
  • Drain the potatoes well and wipe them with a kitchen towel/cloth. We dont want much moisture on it.
  • Add them to the wok.
  • Keep stirring until all the potatoes are covered with oil.
  • Let it cook for about 30 min, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the masalas and salt. mix well.
  • Now let it cook for 20 more min, so that the potatoes are cooked through and have a crispy exterior.
  • Serve with love.
