Childhood Memories:

Without a doubt, Poori aloo sabji is one of the most popular dishes of my childhood memories. After marriage when I got kids we often used to take them out for picnics, road trips, or trekking. During that time I always keep aloo bhurji and puri with me as it is very convenient, handy and a very quick recipe. In fact, the best part is my kids used to love that. I used to make mini poori rolls out of it and pack it individually and they called it a ‘roly-poly’. Haha …Memories!! Although now my daughters have grown up and no more rolly pollys are left in my basket. However, I still miss those days and we often go down the memory lane to rediscover those cute words. 

One of my goals this year for the blog is to share more recipes that I and my daughters grew up eating. Generally, I tend to ignore them, thinking who would want to read about them. Till one of my friends requested me to share some simple day to day north Indian recipes, as she wanted her daughter to learn them.

In fact, this year, because of corona and lockdown my daughter got stuck with no house help till then she had never cooked a meal by herself. That time I taught her simple day to day dishes making aloo bhujia was one of them she found it so convenient. So, I thought it was about time I started sharing recipes that my mom made on a regular basis.

This Aloo Bhurji Sabzi
  • vegan and gluten-free
  • simple potato stir-fry made with minimal ingredients
  • great side dish with dal and rice
  • good for lunchboxes!
  • Good for travel food
  • Can make a super tasty stuffing 
Few important things for this aloo bhujia recipe!
  • Use mustard oil: It is advisable to use mustard oil if you are looking for that authentic taste and crispiness.
  • Make sure mustard oil is really hot before you add the tempering: so, this is the thing with mustard oil.
  • If you don’t heat it well and add the tempering or add the veggies to it, the final dish will have a raw oil taste which is not good at all.
  • The key to avoiding that is to heat up your oil really well. I heat up the point where it’s almost smoking, and then low the heat, remove my pan from heat and add the seasoning.
  • My mom sometimes also added methi daana (fenugreek seeds) to the tempering but that was about it.
