Jeera Aloo Sabji is one of the easiest dishes you can make. It hardly takes time and very quick to prepare. Jeera or Cumin is my favourite spice. I tend to add it more to many of my regular dishes as well. When I started cooking, this was one of the spice I was very sure about, while I used to get confused about other ingredients. While I used to stumble with other spices, I always knew about Jeera and would use very frequently.
