Aloo Tamatar (spiced potatoes and tomatoes)


  • 1 ½ tsp cumin seeds (Jeera)
  • Olive oil
  • 3 onions, sliced
  • 2 spoons garlic and ginger paste
  • 2 green chillies, chopped
  • 5-6 tomatoes, chopped
  • 5 potatoes, boiled and chopped
  • 2 tsp chilli powder
  • 2 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp Garam masala

Serves: 4


  1. Heat the oil in a large pan. Once heated, add the cumin seeds and onions and sauté until brown.
  2. Add the garlic and ginger paste and green chilli – mix well. Add chopped tomatoes and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Mix all the remaining spices (coriander, chilli powder, Garam masala) into a small glass of water (this prevents burning in the pan).
  4. Add the cooked potatoes and salt to taste, and leave to simmer for a further 10 minutes.
