Rasedar aloo tamatar/ vrat wale aloo tamatar

Rasedar Aloo tamatar is a very easy and quick recipe that you can make any time. It goes well with puris. So it is my family’s favorite Sunday brunch. Even if you have unanticipated visitors, you can make it jhatpat and please the appetite of your guest. In normal days, I add onion also, but during navaratras it is made without onion. Aloo tamatar tastes as good as with onion; the only difference is the thickness of the gravy. For that I crush potatoes to thicken the gravy.

Here is my rasedar aloo tamatar….
