This Zeera aaloo(dry potato) has so many memories,it just remind me those days when I was studying in Vizag(Andhra Pradesh).The train to Vizag minimum takes 28-32 hours to reach,so to avoid outside foods in train my mom prepare this Sukhe aaloo with pooris and pickle.
It tastes awesome,because leaving home every time makes me emotional,because I was just 16 that time and it was for the first time I was living away from my parents and that too very far.
So to accompany my loneliness ,my mom always make this zeera aaloo and I like them too.
