Aloo Subzi/ Potato curry

        I know that potato is one vegetable which most people like. I tried making this curry in a typical south Indian style. It goes well with dosai, sambhar or curd rice. It is really yummy..and I am sure you will enjoy it! This is one of my favorite curry as a kid. I use to relish this recipe with curd rice.

Serves up to 4 people
Preparation time: 30 minutes


500 grams of  potato (3-4 medium size)
1 large red onion
3-4 cloves of garlic
1 inch of ginger
2 green chillies
1 teaspoon of sambhar podi
1/2 teaspoon of turmeric

1 teaspoon of mustard
1 teaspoon of Bengal gram(channa dhal)
1 sprig of curry leaves
pinch of asafoetida
2 tbsp oil
Salt as required


1. Boil the potatoes and peel the skin. Cut the potatoes into 2 cubic inch pieces.
2.Heat oil in the pan. Once the oil is heated, add mustard, channa dhal and curry leaves. As the mustard sputters, add asafoetida and onion .
3. Add green chilli, garlic and grated ginger. Fry till the onion turns golden brown.
4.Add turmeric, chilli powder and salt, saute for a minute. Now you can add the potatoes and mix gently.
5.Make sure the potatoes are well coated with all the spices.
6.Add 1/4 cup of water and close the lid. Cook for 10 minutes. Potato curry is ready.
