Simple Potato Curry


Ingredients:

5 Potatoes
Mustard Seeds – ½ teaspoon
Turmeric Powder – ¼ teaspoon
Red Chilli Powder – ¾ teaspoon
Asafoetida (Optional)
Salt as required
Oil – 2 tablespoons

Method:

Peel off the Potato Skin and chop it into small cubes. Heat Oil in a Heavy Kadai, preferably Non-Stick, Add Mustard Seeds, when it sputters, add the chopped Potatoes and give a stir. Fry for a couple of minutes and add Turmeric Powder, Red Chilli Powder, Asafoetida and Salt. Stir occasionally. Sprinkle very little water if Potatoes stick to bottom of the Kadai. Fry until Potatoes are cooked. Serve as a Side dish for the Rice. I love this curry with Saaru Anna (Rasam). It’s a very simple dish. Quick and Easy.

Microwave Method:

Peel off skin and Chop the Potatoes. Put it in a microwave safe bowl that has a lid. ( I use a Microwave Rice Cooker). Wash the vegetable and drain off the water. Close with the lid leaving space for Vent. Cook in Microwave on High for 5 minutes.

Heat oil in a Kadai and Add Mustard Seeds, when it sputters, add the Potatoes and add Turmeric Powder, Red Chilli Powder, Asafoetida and Salt. Give it a stir and fry for a minute. Turn Off Heat. Serve as a Side.
