Potato Curry is one of the least complex curry dishes to prepare. Unlike braised yellow potato, this curry has a spiciness to it as spices are added into this dish.
Potato Curry Ingredients:
- 3-4 large potatoes
- 1 sprig thyme
- 1 onion
- salt to taste
- 1 teaspoon ginger & garlic paste
- 1 sprig curry leaves
- 2 tablespoons cooking oil
- 1 tablespoon chilli powder
- 1 tomato
- fresh dhania (coriander) for garnishing
- 1 teaspoon jeera seeds
- 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
- Peel & cut potatoes into cubes & place into a large bowl/dish.
- Fill the bowl with water so that the potatoes do not turn a brownish colour. Set aside until ready to use.
- Peel & chop onions & set aside.
- Dice tomato & set aside.
- Heat oil in a medium sized pot & add in the onions. Thereafter, add in the jeera seeds, curry leaves & thyme.
- Mix & simmer until onions are translucent.
- Thereafter, add in the chilli powder, the turmeric powder & ginger & garlic paste.
- Stir & simmer for a minute. Thereafter, add in the diced tomato.
- Stir & allow tomatoes to cook until soft. Add a little water if necessary.
- Once the tomatoes have cooked, add in the potatoes, discarding the water that the potatoes had been resting in.
- Give it a stir, coating all the potatoes in the spices. Add a little water, mix & allow the potatoes to cook until soft.
- Make sure to keep checking on the potatoes every 6-7 minutes as you do not want the bottom to get caught on the surface of the pot.
- When the potatoes are soft, add salt to taste, mix & turn off the heat.
- Plate & garnish with fresh dhania (coriander).
- Best served hot.
- Goes well with Puli Sadam.
