Monday is knocking at our doors again! We need vigour to go through the week. We better get started preparing for it then. In this respect, I think Monday goes so well with some spicy, rich and flavor bursting curry. Well, curries and mondays work so well together in my opinion!

Curry and dark weather are made for each other: Wouldn’t it be great when weather is dark, gloomy and cold outside and you get to eat some awesome curry, for just the right amount of spark to push on? Or is it possible that I am saying all of this because I may have a curry to cheer up myself! 😉 But cheering myself alone on a Monday or on any other day doesn’t sound well to me. That’s why I am here with the most exotic curry which would cheer you all.

This makes me nostalgic: OH. BUT, it’s yet another nostalgic time for me. Why? Because this time I am sharing a delicacy from my home town. And the dish is ‘Jaipuri Aloo Pyaz Ki Sabzi’ aka Potato onion curry. Most of you would know that I am from ‘Jaipur, Rajasthan (India). And I absolutely love Rajsthani Cuisine. If this is the first time you are hearing this, then now you know. 😉

Alright, I have something exciting too: Next week India would be celebrating the festival of Raksha Bandhan aka Rakhi. This is a Hindu festival that celebrates the love and duty between brothers and sisters. Rakhi itself is the name of a sacred thread of protection adorn with the love and affection of a sister for her brother.

Some wise men say that the thread of Rakhi is considered stronger than iron chains as it binds the most beautiful relationship in an inseparable bond of love and trust. Others say that the festival of Rakhi has a social significance because of its underlying notion that everybody should live in harmonious coexistence with each other.

And there are a couple of more mythological reasons to celebrate this festival. If you want to learn more about this festival, here is the link to Wikipedia for Raksha Bandhan.

You must be thinking, what’s the connection between this ‘Jaipuri Aloo Pyaaz Ki Sabzi’ curry and this festival? As I told you, Rakhi is a festival between siblings. Well, my brother doesn’t live in Jaipur anymore, and neither do I. We only meet about a couple of times a year. But he always sounds so nostalgic when it comes to food. Yes, he sure is also a foodie like me. Most of the times our chats start and end with some awesome conversation around the dishes we used to eat at a particular point in Jaipur. #Foodieproblem

Popular and spectacular: This Jaipuri Aloo Pyaaz Ki Sabzi is a popular curry which is very famous from the take away food points. It’s also sold at restaurants, but natives know the taste they get at these takeaway shops. There are many shops who sell this curry, but the one we like the most is the oldest shop, which is located in the old town.

Get ready for the long queue: If you are visiting Jaipur and you decide that you want this curry for your next meal, then you have to be mentally prepared for the long queue you will have to face when you go to buy this curry at these points. And 95% of the people are local at this shop because they know where they would get the best flavors and taste. 🙂 And the funny part is that they don’t sell this Potato onion curry according to serving sizes, they sell it in Kilograms. Yes, kilograms.

Everyone wants to eat that curry, but nobody actually wants to go there to buy that Potato onion curry. It’s such an ordeal. They don’t deliver at home, so there is no other option other than going yourself to the shop. If you want to eat it, then someone will have to go to buy it. OR if not, you have to skip the idea of having that Potato onion curry for dinner. The first option is hard, but the second one is even harder. You can’t resist the idea of not having this curry.

I saw my brother and my sister during my last visit to Jaipur. At that time we planned to have this curry again. And then there was a bigger question “who will go and buy this curry”?

Bond for the lifetime: No one was ready to go, so we all ended up going there together — siblings you know! No matter how old you grow, rivalries between siblings would still be the same. 😉 However, it wasn’t really bad because we all had some really good time together.

There’s this one particular shop which sells this Aloo Pyaaz Ki Sabzi with ‘Bejad ki roti’, a thick flat bread which is made with a combination of flours. That is another delicacy from my hometown, which I should share somtime soon! 🙂

Long term solution: We enjoyed this awesome dinner at home. But we wanted the long term solution for this curry craving so that we can enjoy this curry anywhere anytime we want. So we tried to figure out how it is made, and the next day was our trial day. We made it at home, and the taste was almost the same. I think the only difference was the frying. We deep fried potatoes and onions in oil instead of ghee. Eating outside is one thing, but when you are cooking the same dish yourself, you try to go with healthier options. So like the traditional way, frying in ghee didn’t feel comfortable. But yeah! We cracked the recipe. 🙂

And last week I made the same curry and I wished for my siblings to be here with me to taste it.

So what exactly is this curry?

Rajasthani food is considered to be royal food. And royal food needs to feel rich in ingredients. Thus, the authentic food is always greasy and spicy. And this curry is an exact replica of what we Rajasthanis love to eat.

The potatoes and onions are fried in ghee and then simmered in buttery and spicy tomato gravy. I know it might sound sinful and towards the greasy side. But believe me, this dish a must try. If you want the authentic flavors, you must have to deep fry potatoes and onions. The flavours and texture of this curry are spectacular. Imagine melting-in-mouth potatoes with velvety onions and spicy tangy flavor. Mmmm each bite of this curry will surely make you go crazy.
