Aloo Sabzi | How to make Aloo Sabzi for Poori

Aloo Sabzi Recipe For Poori or Chapati is a basic sabzi recipe made with diced potatoes and an easy dish to prepare with basic ingredients available at home. This version of Aloo Sabzi can be served with stuffed pooris or regular pooris and parathas as well. Learn how to make Aloo Ki Sabzi with these step by step pictures.

For the Matar Kachoris, I had to make this thin gravy with potatoes. The interesting fact in this recipe is the usage of Pickle masala. I used our Andhra Avakkai Urugaya. And yes with all the spice that already went into this gravy, the spicy pickle masala made it more spicy as well.

I adapted this from here along with the Matar Kachori Recipe. Since it was for the brunch, I was making sure I made two gravies. Of course, the nonvegetarians of the house had a lighter breakfast, while I enjoyed this feast. Coming to this aloo subzi, during the Meg BM featuring the Indian States, I ended up making so many Aloo Subzis, all being thin runny gravies, apt for being dipped into. Today’s Aloo Sabzi becomes another version in the lot!

The weekend brunch was Matar Kachoris with Aloo Sabzi and Bedmi Poori with Bedmi Chana Sabzi

  1. Hello, It was one of those mad days when I didn’t have any tomatoes in the house, not any even in the freezer or Puree. I had to fix something quick for hunger and all I had on the kitchen counter were some boiled potatoes. 🙂 I always believe Google has a solution to all issues. I did a quick search for alu gravy without tomatoes and clicked on your link as I loved the colour of the gravy, something that was achieved without tomatoes. Thank you for sharing this recipe here. The use of Achar masala, fennel and fenugreek seeds lends a remarkable taste, not to mention the aroma the ginger brings in when you boil the subzi.
