Jeera Aloo / Spicy Potato Wedges
 
Sometimes the humble potatoes save your meals. With a few boiled potatoes resting in the butter box of our refrigerator, I knew what the dinner menu should look like. It’s good to have boiled potatoes handy !!

This side dish can pair with most of the gravy dishes and especially lentil soups . I cooked red lentils and it went very well with that. It is a real treat for potato lovers. And if you have boiled potatoes already, it is ready in 5  minutes. If you are fasting during navratras, you can enjoy these with plain yogurt.

Serving Suggestions

 

These spicy wedges are good by themselves but to enhance your dining experience, relish them with plain yogurt, lentil soup and whole wheat tortilla – just the way we eat them in India.
