Easy Potato Curry

Description

This is a super simple Indian dish to put together and really tasty too! Goes perfect with chapatis or fried puris!

Ingredients

    •    3 large boiled potatoes
    •    2 tablespoons ghee
    •    1 teaspoon cumin seeds
    •    4 tablespoons yogurt
    •    1 teaspoon grated ginger
    •    1 or 2 chopped green chilies
    •    1 tablespoon coriander powder
    •    1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
    •    1/2 teaspoon chili powder
    •    1/4 tsp hing
    •    1 1/2 tsp salt
    •    2 teaspoons besan or cornstarch
    •    2 cups of water (or whey if you have it)
    •    1 tablespoon chopped cilantro

Method

  1. First chop up the potatoes into bite sized cubes. Then add them to boiling salted water and cook for about 8 minutes.

  2. After 8 minutes, immediately drain the potatoes through a colander and run cold water over them to stop the cooking process. Then set aside.

  3. Next we can prepare the spice mixture. Add all the spice ingredients into a bowl and mix together making sure there are no clumps.

    4 tablespoons yogurt
    1 teaspoon grated ginger
    1 or 2 chopped green chilies
    1 tablespoon coriander powder
    1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
    1/2 teaspoon chili powder
    1/4 tsp hing
    1 1/2 tsp salt
    2 teaspoons besan or cornstarch

  4. Here is what it should look like.

  5. Next, heat the ghee on medium high heat and add the cumin seeds.

  6. When the cumin seeds have turned darker brown, add the wet spice mixture and stir constantly. Reduce the flame to medium.

  7. Soon you will see the mixture begin to leave the sides of the pot like this.

  8. Now add the boiled potatoes and slowly fold in the sauce. Do not be too rough or the potatoes will break and turn into mush.

     

  9. Cook the potato mixture for about a minute and then add the water, or whey if you have some. Cook for about 5 more minutes. You will notice the sauce thickening.

  10. Turn the flame off and add fresh chopped cilantro.

  11. Here is what it should look like.

  12. I served the dish with "Buttermilk Puris". Now you are ready to offer to Kṛṣṇa with love and devotion!
