Dahiwale Aloo Ki Subzi with Rajgira Puris

Baby potatoes cooked with curds and spices is a great combination for Rajgira Puris. The recipe uses ingredients that are acceptable on faraal days too.

The simple flavour of the subzi is very soothing to the palate, and just right to nourish yourself on a fasting day. The Dahiwale Aloo ki Subzi is best enjoyed with hot Rajgira Puris.

If you have any difficulty in rolling the rajgira dough, use a plastic sheet for rolling. After adding the curd-water mixture, make sure you keep stirring continuously to prevent it from curdling.

This is an easy recipe, which can be made with few ingredients and in little time! You can also try other faraal recipes like Kand Sandwich or Kand Aloo Pakoda.
