Jeera aloo are tasty and fast to put together. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve come home and put moong daal and cumin potatoes on the stove. Then run off to clean up whatever mess needs to be tended to and always end up thinking, thank goodness I picked a meal that didn’t need attention and was quick!
Jeera aloo makes me believe that cumin and potatoes were made to be put together. As I mentioned, the best part about this dish is that it’s incredibly fast and tasty. I’ve said it a million times, Punjabi food is phenomenal but labor and time intensive, so I’m inevitably obsessed with the easy recipes.
I’m obsessed with potatoes in general, but this recipe is magnificent. Such simple ingredients and such a bold flavor. I suppose that’s the beauty about potatoes, they soak up the flavors they’re being cooked with.
Useless fact #1902: The potato was the first food ever grown in space. It was first taken into space in 1995 with the space shuttle Columbia.
Worst fact #3: All of the facts that I throw out aren’t googled. Sadly, I just know these random useless facts for absolutely no reason at all!
