Vrat wali Alu ki Sabzi

This potato sabzi is mostly made during pujas when many fast(vrat). During fasting most people don't eat salt, whole wheat flour, onions etc. This dish is made without these basic ingredients and still tastes yummy. So I make it at home even though I don't fast. :-)


Preparation Time: 5 min
Cooking Time: 5-10 min
Serves: 2-3


3 potatoes, boiled, peeled and coarsely mashed
1 tsp Ghee / oil - though ghee is preferred
2-3 green chillies, slit length-wise
sendha namak - rock salt - I use regular sea salt as I don't fast
1/2 cup dhaniya/Cilantro leaves, chopped


Heat ghee/oil in a pan. Add green chillies, salt and potatoes. Add water based on the kind of consistency you like. Add dhaniya leaves. Serve with Roti / puri. During fasts since you can't eat whole wheat flour, my mom makes puris using Singhare ka atta (Waterchestnut Flour).
