Mathura Style Aloo Ki Sabzi

Mathura (Uttar Pradesh) is a holy city in India with immense historical/religious importance. It is a town of great color, culture, and cuisine. The spiritual significance of this place also impacts the cuisine of the region.

The cuisine of Mathura is mainly sattvic, rich in dairy, and mainly around fresh produce.

This aloo ki sabzi provides energy and keeps you fulfilled for a longer time, which is essential while following a sattvic diet.

A dish that feels like tradition and tastes just like the festive season. Following closely in the footsteps of my arbi ki sabji recipe.

Serving Suggestion

There’s something so pure about making an entire meal of aloo ki sabzi – the aroma of the spices spluttering in the hot ghee, the tangy gravy being stirred in a kadhai, the hot puris puffing up. A treat for the culinary senses.

The spicy, soupy vegan potato curry, along with poori or paratha, raita, homemade pickle, and masala tea does a fantastic job at satisfying your festive cravings.

I love to tuck into this bit of yumminess on a beautiful winter morning for indulgent Indian breakfast and be thankful for all we have – family, friends, and good food.
