Aloo Jeera/Jeera Aloo/Cumin Flavored Potato Fry

 Everybody likes potato in any form,this aloo jeera is a flavorful potato fry which can be made in 5 minutes if the potatoes are boiled.I make this fry whenever we wanted to have a simple and comforting lunch such as rasam or dhal along with rice.This fry goes very well with rotis too,now on to the recipe...................

Potato4nos.(medium size)
Green chilly(finely chopped)1no.
Cumin seeds/jeeragam1tsp
Red chilly powder/milagai podi 3/4tsp
Coriander powder/dhaniya podi 1/2tsp
Cumin powder1/2tsp
Turmeric powder/manjal podi1/2tsp
Coriander leaves(chopped)2tbs

  • Boil the potatoes in a pressure cooker for a whistle and peel the skin,cut into small chunks.
  • Heat the pan with oil and crackle the cumin seeds and add the green chilly.
  • Add the potato cubes and stir it for a while,now add the powders and salt to it.Mix it gently and keep it in a medium flame for 5 minutes with stirring in between to prevent burning.
  • Finally add the chopped coriander leaves and turn off the flame.
  • Simple yet delicious aloo jeear is ready.
  • Serve it with dhal or rotis.


  • Instead of cumin and coriander powder separately,a tsp of dhania  jeera powder can be used.
  • Cook it in a medium flame to prevent burning of the powders,otherwise the color and taste will change.
