Aloo di sabji is the best comfort food you could ask for.
It doesn’t matter what the temperature, season, or day looks like, aloo puri is the PERFECT brunch treat, or pick me up comfort food. Aloo di sabji is warm, hearty, and so incredibly flavorful. The puri is fluffy, crisp, and chewy. The veggies are fresh, and the raita (not pictured above) is soothing and cooling. It is the most quintessential and authentic Punjabi dish.
This recipe is tried and true, and you may say, who starts a cooking site just to say, “Hello, my food is shit.” But I mean it is tried and true in the sense that this is the same recipe that my family has made for 3 generations. Being Punjabi, I take wild offense to “authentic Punjabi” anything that then turns out to be a pile of poo. We do not use curry leaves in Punjab, we import coconut milk, so it’s not a go to, and we have no clue what the hell to do with anything Bengali. So similarly, don’t fall prey to basic bitches and their PSL obsessions. I almost feel the need to insert a be Punjab buy Punjab sticker. Instead I’ll say authentic Punjabi recipes are hearty, satiating, and meaty by the very nature of the base masala. Perfect for brunch, lunch, or a cozy comfort food.

This sounds wonderful and usually quite enjoy many aloo dishes I’ve tried although I am certainly poorly equipped to know how authentic any of the others were. There are so many green chilis around the world with relatively few available in my part of Canada. Are you able to suggest a typical pepper equivalent for this recipe?
Oh I’m so glad to hear that you like aloo, in general. Authenticity is always hard to glean these days on the internet. Especially, with Punjabi food. You can use any pepper that you prefer, to be honest. Jalapenos, Serranos, Thai peppers, etc.I just wouldn’t use anything as mild as an Anaheim.
So excited that you are making this……..
Yay! Thanks! It’s definitely one of my favorite comfort foods.
