  • Pressure Cooker


  • 4 Potatoes boiled
  • 1 tbsp Ghee
  • 1/2 tsp Fennel Seeds coarsely ground
  • 1/4 tsp Fenugreek Seeds coarsely ground
  • 1/4 tsp Nigella Seeds
  • 1/3 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 1/3 tsp Red Chilly Powder
  • 2 tsp Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Tamarind Pulp
  • Salt to taste


  • Add ghee to a pot and let it heat on medium flame.
  • Next, add fennel seeds, fenugreek seeds and Nigella seeds. Saute for a few seconds.
  • Now add the peeled and mashed potatoes. Mash the potatoes with your hands.
  • Add turmeric powder, red chilly powder, salt and sugar.
  • Mix everything very well and saute for 2-3 minutes.
  • Now add about 11/2 cups of water. Cover with a low and let the potatoes cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Next add the tamarind pulp.
  • At this point take a test check of the flavours .
  • The Aloo Sabzi should be slightly sweet, slightly spicy and slightly tangy. It should be a perfect balance of flavours.
  • If there are any big pieces of Aloo, break them with the ladle. Cook the curry for another 3-4 minutes, till the gravy, is a little thick and the potatoes have absorbed the flavours.
