Till last month, I cooked everything by estimation……little of this, little of that….and lots of love of course!!
Now I measure anything and everything…..I am sure my Polish friend would benefit from this!
There are umpteen varieties of potato curry for puri. The below is the very basic, but tasty. You can add other ingredients like green peas, carrot, pepper powder etc if time permits.
2 medium potatoes boiled
1 medium onion sliced
1 green chili sliced or slit
2 cloves garlic finely chopped
1 tsp ginger finely chopped
Few sprigs curry leaves
1 small tomato chopped
3 tbsp coriander leaves chopped
½ tsp mustard seeds
2 pinch fenugreek powder
¼ tsp turmeric powder
3 tbsp oil
Heat oil and add mustard seeds
When they splutter, add onion, ginger, garlic, green chili, curry leaves. Stir till onion becomes translucent.
Add turmeric powder and fenugreek powder. Stir and add mashed potato, tomato and ½ cup water. Heat through and add coriander leaves. Adjust salt and take off fire. Serve with hot puffed puris.
You can adjust water to get gravy.
Cut peeled potatoes into chunks, add 3tbsp of water and microwave for 5 minutes in a closed bowl. Your potatoes are boiled! Drain excess water.
