Aloo Jeera recipe is quite similar to potato roast but here we add extra jeera for more flavour. This recipe is more popular in North India especially Punjab. Simple yet tasty dish for all potato lovers. It goes well with almost all curries like dal, sambar, rasam..etc. Quick to make dish in a jiffy with very limited ingredients available in our pantry.

You could freshly roast and grind the cumin and coriander seeds too for more fresh flavour. I have served here with Palak dal.
