Punjabi Aloo Ki Sabzi aur Puri

We are starting the fourth week of BM # 68 Mega Marathon themed on Cooking Carnival and I am doing 1 ingredient 26 days. I also ended up having a subtheme with the main ingredient Potato and for this week, I will be focusing on Breakfast dishes. The dish can either be a gravy or a bread or however it is served in different cuisines. 

For day one, I have a typical Punjabi Aloo Ki Sabzi aur Puri. I know I have already too many Aloo Ki Sabzi and still this one was different. When I saw this post I was inspired to have it serve for the breakfast. I served it for dinner was another issue. As we know what we eat for breakfast is most suitable for dinner as well.

I mostly followed the recipe except also adding whole cumin seeds and using pre ground roasted cumin powder. Overall taste was awesome with aromatic cumin powder giving its impact.
