You know, once a reader mailed me saying, "Don't give us simple recipes. We know all that. Give us something we don't know". Ah well, Jeera Aloo is another of those recipes which you are most likely to know. But then again, I share recipes that I cook. Even if the recipe is a breeze, I still feel the need to share it. It's cooked by me, after all.
You should make Jeera Aloo when you don't want to make anything else. It will never dash your hopes. I promise. All you have to do is cut the potatoes into cubes and cook them in cumin seeds and some other simple spices. This dry sabzi when paired with any dal or a gravy dish is adequate to complement any meal. That's what I do to escape elaborate cooking on lazy days.
