Cook's Hideout: Potato Curry

Potato Curry

We are a potato loving family. They are happy if I make anything with potato, which is great because I add it to dishes that they normally wouldn't eat and the potato in it lures them to eat it. For example, which kid really likes wheat rava upma (godhuma rawa upma)? At least I didn't while growing up, but my kids eat it without fuss when I add potatoes to it -- happy mama :-)

Today's potato curry is super simple and my kids absolutely love it. It tastes great as is, but tastes even better with mor kuzhambu. Give this combo a try, you'll know what I'm talking about.
Potato Curry:
Potato - 2 medium, boiled and cubed
Mustard seeds - 1tsp
Cumin seeds - 1sp
Chana dal - 1tsp
Urad dal - 1tsp
Dry red chili - 2
Red chili powder - ½tsp
Curry leaves - 8~10
Salt - to taste

  • Heat 2tbsp oil in a pan, add chana, urad dal, dry red chili, mustard and cumin seeds. Once the seeds start to splutter, add curry leaves and cook for 30 seconds.
  • Next add the potato and cook till the potatoes start to get crispy and crusty, stirring occasionally to cook evenly. 
  • Stir in red chili powder and salt. Mix well and serve hot with rice.
