Red chori potato curry

   I recently discovered my sons liking to chori dhal and so I have been experimenting with different vegetables. In this effort, I used potatoes which mixes well with this dhal giving a thick consistency and can be good accompaniment for rice or rotis


1/2 cup red chori dhal
2 medium sized potatoes
1 tsp red chilli powder(~spice level)
1/8 tsp of turmeric powder
1 large chopped onion
1 tsp of  fennel seeds
oil as required
salt as required


1-2 tbsp of grated coconut
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/4 fenugreek seeds


1.Soak chori dhal for 6 hours. Chop the potatoes in to tiny pieces.
2.In a pan, add 1/2 tsp of oil. Once the oil is heated, add fennel seeds. Once the nice aroma comes, add the chopped onion and saute for a minute.
3.Now add the potatoes, red chilly powder, turmeric and saute for 2-3 minutes.
3.Transfer the contents of the pan to the soaked dhal and add 2 cups of water. Add salt and pressure cook them up to 4 whistles.
4.To the oil in a preheated pan, add the seasoning. Saute for a minute and transfer to the cooked dhal.

5.Delicious red chori potato curry is ready. Serve with rice and papad.
