A good accompaniment to Chapathi
• 20 baby potatoes or 2 large potatoes cut into big chunks
• 1 tsp chili powder
• 1 tsp coriander powder
• ¼ tsp turmeric powder
• ½ tsp black pepper powder
• ½ tsp salt
• ½ tsp garam masala powder
• 3 medium onions thinly sliced
• Handful of curry leaves
• ½ tsp mustard seeds –
• 4 tbsp oil
Scrub the potatoes clean. If using big potatoes, remove skin and cut into big pieces.
Add potatoes, 1 cup water and all dry powders and cook till soft and the water is completely evaporated. Test a potato with toothpick to see if it’s cooked enough. If not, add little more boiling water.
In another pan (preferably nonstick) add oil and splutter mustard seeds. Add onions and curry leaves and fry till onions become slightly brown. Now add the cooked potatoes and fry till all are mixed well. Adjust salt. This is a very dry curry but goes well with chapathis.
