Served with plain yogurt. We may also use fresh lemon juice 🍋
Fasting recipes are very easy and quick to create. Reason being, only a few spices and herbs are allowed to use into it. Plus no onions and garlic is there. Not only easy to create, fasting recipes are also easier to digest. A good time to purify mind and body and get connected to our divine nature.
Here, I have created a very common potato fasting recipe with an interesting twist. Give it a try and I am sure, you’re going to love it for sure.
- 2 medium size Boiled Potatoes 🥔
- 1 to 2 Green Chilies
- 1 to 2 tbsps. Fresh Coriander
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup Raw/Baked Peanuts 🥜
- 1 to 2 tsps. Ghee (purified butter)
- 1/2 tsp. Cumin Seeds
- 1/2 tsp. Black Pepper Powder
- 1/4 tsp. Sindhav Salt (Fasting Salt)
- 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. Fresh Lemon Juice 🍋
- or Plain Yogurt
Main ingredients (boiled potatoes, peanuts, green chilies, and coriander).
On a low-medium heat, add ghee and peanuts, stir until the color starts changing (about 2 minutes)…
Transfer the peanuts in a bowl for later use. In the same pan/ghee, add cumin seeds, green chilies, potatoes, black pepper, and salt. Let it cook on a low-medium heat for 5 to 6 minutes…
Add a generous amount of fresh coriander, and green chilies…
Add peanuts and let it get crispy for another 2 to 3 minutes…
Transfer the spicy potatoes and peanuts to a serving plate. Add fresh lemon Juice and it’s ready to serve 🙏
Or serve with fresh plain yogurt.
Notes: Potato is one of the most popular vrata/fasting vegetable. It is easily available in all parts of the world. It makes a variety of delicious and satisfying vrata recipes. Here, I am sharing an interesting combination of potatoes and peanuts. All I can say is a MUST TRY recipe.
It is always good to add vitaminC with potatoes. Either lemon juice and/or a small serving of plain yogurt.
