Dubki Walle Aloo is the Mathura style Traditional Aloo ki sabji. It is the perfect side dish for pooris or khasta kachoris. Topped up with Khatti Meethi Methi Ki Chutney there are very few things that beat this combination.
I love Dubki Walle aloo for more reasons than one. They are super simple to make and pack such a flavour punch. Especially when topped with the khatti meethi methi ki chutney (Sweet and sour Fenugreek Seeds Relish) it triumphs proudly.
The gravy of this aloo is so basic, you just need handful of spices that we usually always have at home. No onions, no garlic, no tomato so this perfectly valid Jain friendly food too. Well not strictly speaking as Jains don’t have potatoes but like they say in Bombay “semi-Jain” may be.
The chutney that I learnt to make from a friend’s mother balances the latent spice of the dubki walle aloo so well. It is not mandatory to make but it does take the whole dish to another level.
So here are both the recipes. Coming up next – those delicious looking khasta kachoris and a story very very dear to my heart.
