Aloo tamatar sabzi is a super quick and simple recipe made with potato and tomato as main ingredient. I have given this recipe in Aval Vikatan supplement which got published in august 2014. Since it is navratri fasting for many North Indians, i thought it is the right time to post this recipe. I am sure about the exact rules and regulations followed during navratri but as i know onion and garlic will not be included in the food. Even if you don't have any vegetable at home simple potatoes can make this yummy sabzi. Aloo tamatar is a  perfect side dish for poori, chapathi|roti, and jeera rice or any pulaos.
