Potato Curry

This dish goes well with chappathi,poori and idiyappam.I like this one particularly when paired with road side shop's "kutti" dosai.


Potato-3 medium sized , peeled and chopped in quaters.
Onion-1 finely sliced
Green chillies-3 (slit)
Chilly powder-1tsp
Turmeric powder-1/2tsp
Garam masala - 1 tsp ( or you can use whole garam masalas)
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Urad dal- 12/tsp,
curry leaves - a few
Salt - as needed


Heat oil in the pressure cooker and fry mustard seeds,urad dal, curry leaves,green chillies.Add sliced onions.Fry till onions are golden brown.Now add potatoes and add turmeric powder,chilly powder and salt.Pour little water and Pressure cook for about 1 whistle.After 1 whistle, open the cooker and add garam masala powder and let it boil for few minutes.Serve hot chappathi,poori or idiyappam.

I made this only yesterday for dinner with chapatis :) Btw, I love your template and the simple colours used. Always a sucker for white three column templates :)
