Pin it to save it for later ! 

Aaloo Tamatar Ki Sabji is that one of the easiest Indian dish you can prepare. It is very simple yet versatile and irresistible sabji can be done in jiffy or ziffy where Aaloo (Potato) and Tamatar ( tomato) cooked with basic Indian spices.  Aloo Tamatar ki Sabji is staple in every Indian household thus not much importance given to this recipe although this amazingly flavourful sabji no one wants miss once it is served to them.

This sabji can be served with roti, naan, paratha or Poori, but in my opinion it is best accompanied with Poori ( Deep Fried Indian Flat bread ) and Aate Ka Halwa ( Indian Wheat Pudding) and that too enjoy for Sunday's brunch. Throughout India, this dish being prepared by every household and every household have their own unique method. I am sharing my recipe which I learnt from my mum ...I wasn't even a teenager that time.
