Boiled Aloo Curry ( po-tay-toe or po-tah-toe)

Whether you say po-tay-toe or I say po-tah-toe, Its the same. So obviously how ever you cook potato, it turns out yummiliciuos. There are multiple ways to make a dish out of any vegetable or any kind of meat. Well this is one of my favorite kind in potato.


White Potatoes 6-7
Onion  1
Green Mirchi -7-8
Turmeric 1 tsp
Oil 2 tbsp
Mustard seeds half teaspn
Jeera -1 tsp
Ginger Garlic paste
Salt as per taste
Dhaniya Powder 1 tsp
Cilantro - washed and chopped

Boil the potatoes in a pressure cooker up to 4 whistles.

In the mean while, cut the onion length wise (Julienne style) and chop green chillies using a chopper ( I use green chillies more than red chilli powder in my food. So in order to reduce the pain of cutting chillies all the time, I use a chopper)

Peel the boiled potatoes skin and cut them in to small cubes.

Heat oil in a non-stick pan and add Mustard seeds and Jeera.

When they start spluttering, add chopped green chillies and Onion.

Once the onions become transparent, add turmeric and ginger garlic paste.

Let it fry for few seconds and add boiled potato cubes.

Add salt and mix it for few seconds.

Add a cup of water and close the lid for 4-5 minutes on medium flame.

Open the lid and mash few potato cubes with the edge of spatula.

Add dhaniya powder at the end and take the curry in to a serving bowl.

Add chopped cilantro leaves.

It goes really well with rice/chapathi or Dosa.
