Potato Subzi/Curry - Simple potato Curry - Side-dish for Roti/poori

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Thursday, January 28, 2016

A simple, no-fuss curry, a regular at home, particularly during, crazy weekday mornings. I need to get boxes packed before 6:45 in the morning. When i plan my day the previous night, the day goes well without any hurry-burry. There are days, where i enter my kitchen blank, totally blank. With no planning, I will run here and there, like a headless chicken. 
Potato gravy, potato side-dish, Potato curry,
Those mad days, this potato curry is my rescue. It takes only 15 minutes to make, while the curry is simmering, you can roll the roti's and pack. I have crazy potato lovers at home, so this curry is a big hit always. Try this subzi and let me know how you liked it.

4 nos medium potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
1 large onion, chopped fine
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 large tomato, chopped fine
2 tsp homemade sambhar powder or (1 tsp red chili powder & 1 tsp coriander powder)

  • Remove the cover, the potatoes will be cooked by this time. Check the consistency of the side-dish, it should be a little saucy and not runny. Add fresh coriander leaves. take it off the stove. Serve it along with Roti's even with dosa.
