Aloo Dill(Suva) Palya

This is one of the recipes which can be prepared if you don’t have any plans, or say, you came home after a hectic day and don’t feel like cooking something that’s take a lot of time. This recipe is also best for bachelors who are not inspired to spend more time in the kitchen.

If you have the potatoes, boiled, peeled and diced and the dill leaves, cleaned, washed and chopped, this curry can be put together in no time. It goes very well with both rotis and rice, whereas potato is called “The King of vegetables”. It is so versatile that there are thousands of recipes that can be prepared with potatoes.

It is a very simple dish yet delicious and goes well with rice and rotis. It is sometimes made even simpler with just cumin seeds and chillis without much spices with a pale yellow look. You can drizzle some lemon juice and have it (as a starter) with some sliced onions it tastes heavenly!!!
