No Onion- No Garlic Recipe
A no onion –no garlic recipe, vrat ke aloo is a simple curry made with boiled potatoes dipped and cooked in a tomato curry. No use of onion & garlic makes this curry very soft on your digestive system and is prepared mainly during the fasting periods. Its the same curry we make with our poori/fried wheat pastries. This recipe can go well with your poori ,kachori and all other occassions like pooja bhog etc. In India, all pooja / prayer meetings are held with a following lunch or dinner serving where no use of onion or garlic is common.This dish is a must on most occassions.
During fasting,since some people avoid having red chilli powder,you may enhance the taste of this curry by adding chopped green chillies. This curry is a staple in hour house for all eight days of fasting. We serve this with samak rice and kuttu/singhade i.e buckwheat or water chestnut flour pooris/dosa/kachori. It goes very well with the khatta meetha kaddu ki sabzi/ sweet & sour pumpkin vegetable,you ay find a recipe on my blog for the same.Here’s hw you can make this simple potato curry.
