DRY POTATO CURRY

Potato is one vegetable that goes well as a side dish whether as french fries with burgers and sandwiches or as curries with chapathi's and rice,its just perfect and they taste absolutely delicious.We have chapathi's for dinner almost everyday,so i try to make different dishes to go along with it.Here is my quick and easy to make dry potato curry that goes very well with Bread /chapathi/poori or rice.

INGREDIENTS

Potato - 2 nos, diced big

onion - 1 medium size, diced

tomato - 1 medium size, diced

gin-gar paste - 1 tsp

curry leaves - 1 sprig

green chillies - 2,remove the seeds and chop fine

cumin seed - 1 tsp

turmeric - 1 tsp

chilli pdr - 1 tsp

coriander pdr - 1 1/2 tsp

coriander leaves - a bunch, chopped

water - 3/4 cup

salt to taste

METHOD

Heat some oil in a pan.Add cumin seed,curry leaves,gin-gar paste,green chillies and onions.Then add turmeric and salt.Saute well until the onions become translucent.Add the chopped tomatoes,red chilli pdr and coriander pdr.While sauteeing if it gets too dry sprinkle some water.Add the potatoes and stir well.Pour water and check the salt.Cover it with a lid and let it cook on a medium heat until potatoes are tender.Keep stirring in between so that it doesnt get burnt underneath.If the water is fully absorbed before the potatoes are cooked then sprinkle some water.Garnish with coriander leaves.Serve hot with rice or any indian flat bread.
