    Hi Harsh..Thanks for the recipe. I am in the US for a short trip. So I searched for the recipe and found yours. However I did it little differently. I put all the ingredients together and mixed it and then spread that on a plate and microwaved for 8 minutes. WoW...what I got was nice crispy jeera aloo. Try this and give your comments


    hi harsh, u can also try it with green chillies but u have to ignore the red chilli masala for it. my husband loves jeera aloo but with green chillies. try it.

    Dear Shweta, Thank you for the best comment I have ever received. I am honoured.


    Hello, Mr. tripathi, till date, I may have tried countless variations of Jeera Aloo from all over the length and bredth of India.. But, honestly speaking, your's turned out to be an authentic one, indeed. My daughter loves this dish so much that she keeps on asking me to cook it for her atleast thrice in a week. Thanks anyways, meanwhile, keep up the good work. Regards, shweta.

    read ingredients, we are using boiled potatos only. You can cut potatos into 1" cubes.


    u didn't mention the size of cut potatoes as you are not boiling it, it need to be cook nicely. pls mention quantity of masalas
