It generally had during the fasting time. You can have this in Navratri, Ekadashi, Shivratri, Janmashtami, etc. fasts. It is very easy to make. There are very few ingredients or spices required to make it. We can call this a satvik dish also. As there is no onion, garlic in it.

It is made with boiled aloo (potatoes) and tamatar (tomatoes). Potatoes and tomatoes are easily available in the whole world. In addition to that, we need only black pepper powder and sendha namak (rock salt) in the spices. If you do fasts regularly then you will have these ingredients available at your home.

Aloo tamatar ki sabji I eat with kuttu ki puri and with kuttu and singhade ke pakodis. I made this recipe in all my fasts. And eat it with usually vrat ki pakodis.

I made usually kuttu ki pakodis, aloo raita, aloo tamatar ki sabji for us in vrats. And also make samak ke chawal or sabudana khichdi for my husband. There 3-4 dishes are enough to open the vrat.

What is the right consistency of sabji

Generally, it depends on you. Some people like the thick gravy of sabji whereas some like the thin gravy of sabji. And I like the thin consistency of sabji. As I soak my pakodis in the gravy of sabji. So, the thin consistency of sabzi is required otherwise, pakodis will not soak in it.


But if you want to have only pooris with sabji then you can make a thick gravy. As it will be easy to have it.

In India, people like to have tari ki sabji(sabji with gravy) as it fills the stomach easily. And it satisfies the hunger. But I noticed the strange thing. When I was a kid I used to eat dry sabjis a lot. And I liked it. But nowadays I like to have tari ki sabji(sabji with gravy) at least one time a day. I love it too much.

I noticed that people age more than 30 prefer tari ki sabji(sabji with gravy) more than the dry one. And older people love the tari ki sabji more.

It is just my observation. Tell me in the comments which kind of sabji do you like gravy or a dry one?
