HING ALOO

Posted in : PALYA / SOOKHA SUBJI / USLI / SALAD on by : Divya Suresh

Hing Aloo is a Rajasthani stir fried Potato subji, with regularly used masalas and the pungent taste of Hing ( asafoetida ). Perfect as a quick, easy & hassle free side dish for chapati, Phulka, Poori, Naan, roti etc. First time I tasted this dish in a restaurant ( Veg Gulati ) in Delhi. We all liked it instantly and I definitely wanted to recreate it at home & now it has become a regular side dish at my place.
