Bedmi Aloo Sabzi

The culinary landscape of India is as diverse as its populations. The cuisine changes drastically from the north to the south and east to the west. Every region is famous for its specialties. While the south Indian cuisine is dominated by the abundant use of spices, the north Indian cuisine is relatively less spicy.

I watch a lot of food and travel related shows and that is what inspires me to learn about new cultures, cuisines and drives my passion for food in general. One such show that me and the husband have always enjoyed on Netflix is related to Indian cuisines and culture. It is in one of the episodes of this show that we learnt about the ancient city of Delhi and its surroundings. One of the most famous street food / breakfast food of northern India is called bedmi puri, and it is traditionally served with a tangy spicy tomato and potato curry called bedmi aloo. It is also known as ‘ dubki aloo ‘ which means chunks of softened soaked potatoes in a flavorful runny sauce or curry. Because the recipe has no onion and garlic, it is called satvik food and is also made during the festivities like Holi, Diwali and Dusshera etc.,

You can have the sabzi with puri, roti or rice. We had it with a side of jeera fried rice.

Notes:

  • Use oil instead of ghee to make the dish vegan.
  • I used Amul cow ghee for this recipe.
