Vrat wale sookhe aloo is spicy falahari recipe that can be served during Navratri and other fasts. You can serve these falahari sookhe aloo as a sabzi or snack.
This sookhe aloo sabzi which is popularly known as Vrat wale aloo is super quick Recipe. I make this sabji often for weekend breakfast/brunch and that tastes best with whole wheat paratha and a bowl of fresh Dahi.
Sookhe aloo sabji is one of absolute childhood favourite because I simply adore potatoes in all forms. Mom used to make these during Ekadasi fast and Navratri fast when only falahari food is eaten. We both sisters who never fasted used to feast especially on these. So she always used to cook extra quantity 🙂
Even though I don’t fast I still enjoy eating Vrat ka khana during Navratri . But cook some of these these Navratri fasting dishes at least once. Although this is not a low GI recipe (I personally follow low GI diet these days for health reasons), but once in a while I enjoy this carb rich sookhe alooki sabzi.
If you observe Navratri fast you can serve this aloo sabzi with kutu ki Roti or poori or you can enjoy these as it is which a salad plate and curd just like I enjoy these. For the best taste do sprinkle some extra green chilli , roasted til (sesame seeds) and pomegranate seeds. Everything adds to the taste.
