Potatoes play a significant role in every Indian kitchen. Just look at the variety the humble tuber has to offer. May it be aloo ki sabzi, aloo ke pakode, or aloo paratha - we always find a way to sneak potatoes into our diet. And why not? They are easily accessible and available throughout the country, and go well with almost everything. For instance, you must have heard of aloo ka halwa too, right? To add to the versatility of our beloved potato dishes, we bring for you another easy and fuss-free lunch accompaniment known as - Allugeda.

Made with everyday ingredients like mustard seeds, coriander, curry leaves, and a pinch of hing, it tastes as good as any other quintessential aloo ki sabzi.
