"Aloo Curry Recipe- A recipe of mashed potatoes, onions, green chilies and cumin seeds."
If you ask me to suggest a quick and tasty indian breakfast side dish, I would recommend this recipe of mashed potatoes. I would recommend this because, it is one of the first recipes, I made when I started to cook in 2010.That is not the only reason, though. This recipe doesn't use any masala's as such. Yet it gives you an unbeatable taste that you would love.
If you are a fan of potatoes like me, and if you want to cook a new indian dish today, hop on the wagon. Read further to catch the preparation steps.
1. Take 2 big potatoes or 3 medium potatoes. Cut them into half without peeling their outer skins.
2. In a cooker, pour around 3 cups of water enough to immerse the potatoes. Add ¼ tbsp. of salt and cook it for 6-7 minutes. (Roughly 2-3 whistles).
3. In the mean-time, dice 1 onion and 2 long green chilies (or 3 small green chilies) into small pieces and keep them aside.
4. In a frying pan, add 2-3 tbsp of oil. As the oil gets heated add ¼ tbsp. of mustard seeds, ¼ tbsp. cumin seeds and the diced green chilies. Also add 5-6 curry leaves.
5. Add the diced onions into the mix. Add 1tbsp of salt, ¼ tbsp. of turmeric powder and stir well.
6. As the onions turn brown, check the potatoes. Peel their skin and mash them well.
7. Now, add the mashed potatoes into the mix and stir well. Garnish it with chopped coriander leaves.
8. Switch off the flame. Your mashed potatoes are ready to be served. Have it with roti and complement it with a milk tea.
Make sure you don’t burn the mustard seeds or cumin seeds to black color.
Ensure you keep a medium flame, while cooking.
If you feel your potatoes take long time to cook, keep for 4-5 whistles. The better the potatoes are cooked, the easier it is to mash them.
