Aloo Pyaz Ki Sukhi Sabji

Serves: 2- 3
Total Time: 30 mins


  • 3 – 4 medium Aloo (Potatoes)
  • 2 medium Pyaz (Onions)
  • 1 tblsp Oil / ghee
  • 1 tsp Jeera Seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Haldi (Turmeric Powder)
  • 1/2 tsp Coriander Powder (Sukha Dhania Powder)
  • 1/4 – 1/2 tsp Garam Masala Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Red Chilly Powder (Optional)
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tblsp Green Coriander fine chopped (Hara Dhania)

How To Make aloo pyaz ki sukhi sabji :

  • Peel the potatoes and chop them in an inch cubes. Put them in a bowl of water till further use. This will prevent the potatoes from getting black.
  • Next chop the onions roughly. We want chunky pieces of onion. Do not chop them very fine.
  • Now heat the oil or ghee in a kadai or pan and add the jeera seeds. When they begin to splutter add the haldi (turmeric) powder and immediately add the chopped onions.
  • I prefer ghee as not only ghee is healthy but adds an amzing taste to the sabzi too. Ghee is also called clarified butter and is readily available in Indian grocery stores.
  • Fry the onions only for a minute or till they get light pink, shiny and translucent.
  • Now add the potatoes and salt and mix well.
  • Cover them and cook till the potatoes are completely done. But do remember to stir and flip the potatoes occasionally or they will start sticking to the base.
  • If you feel the potatoes are sticking to the base and are still uncooked and add a tablespoon of water and cook further.
  • Once done add red chilly powder, garam masala powder and coriander powder. Mix well. Cook for a minute or so.
  • Then add the chopped green coriander.


  • You can replace red chilly powder with black pepper. It tastes equally good.
  • You can also add slit green chilly to add the extra hotness.
  • You can even prepare it with boiled poatoes too. Now isn’t that a life saver
