Aloo Hariyali/Hariyali Aloo/Potatoes in Green Gravy

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Thursday, May 12, 2016

Potatoes are everyones favorite. My people are no different from this, we love potatoes in any form, crispy curry, mushy mash, with dal as kootu, in mixed rice, in vathakuzhambu or mixed vegetable sambar.
I made this aloo hariyali/Potatoes in green gravy as a side to go with Methi Poori. The combo was spot on, we loved the gravy as it was mildly spice with green chilies and coconut. Zeera/jeera added nice flavor and new color of the gravy made kiddo's more interested in tasting it more.This subzi will pair well with rice too. Try it and let me know how you liked it.
