This Indian potato dish is perfect for when the month lasts longer than your grocery budget does. Aloo jeera just means cumin seed potatoes. It’s simple and requires just a few spices. If you don’t have them on hand, you can get a lot cheap at the Indian market or just exactly the small amounts you need from your local co-op’s bulk bins.
I eat mine with Indian mango pickles because I always have a jar in the fridge. They aren’t like American pickles at all. They are a little sour, salty, and a little goes a long way. I usually take a small piece and cut it up into teeny-weenie pieces and mix them up in my curry or dal.
