Jeera Aloo (Stir-Fried Potatoes)


Jeera Aloo

Potato lovers, you’ve got to try this simple and easy stir-fried potatoes aka Jeera Aloo. The steps are super easy – Just boil the potatoes, stir-fry them with cumin seeds and a couple of distinct spices, and sprinkle chopped cilantro (or green onions) on top. The result is nothing but delicious!

I used two classical Indian spices, Asafoetida (also known as Hing) and Dried Mango Powder (also known as Amchur) to flavor up the potatoes.

I like to serve them alone. But feel free to try them with your rotis, naans, or rice. Let’s do this!

  1. Wash, skin, and cut the potatoes into medium chunks.
  2. Transfer them to your Instant Pot or Stovetop Pressure Cooker. Add 1 cup of water and cook for 4 minutes on High (for instant pot) OR for 4-5 whistles (for stovetop pressure cooker). 
  3. Heat a pan over medium heat. Add oil. Once it's hot, add cumin and let it splutter until light brown.

  7. Sprinkle some freshly chopped cilantro and mix some more.
