Potato curry

This potato curry is delicious with rice or any type of roti. Also it is easy to prepare within few minutes. I use the steamer tray of rice cooker to boil potatoes & it saves time for me.

Ingredients (3-4 servings)

2 medium sized potato
1 tomato sliced
1 onion sliced
1 tsp chili powder
1 tbs raw curry powder
¼ tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp fenugreek seeds
Piece of cinnamon stick
Curry leaves
Piece of a pandan leaf (rampe)
Thick coconut milk ½ cup
Salt to taste


First boil potatoes.Peel them & cut into pieces.
Then mix all spice powders with potato & keep aside.

Heat about 2-3 tbspn oil in a pan.
When it is hot, add mustard seeds.
When it is pop out, add onion.
Once onions are tender, add the potato mix & mix well.
Then add tomato & curry leaves/rampe. Mix well.
Cover & cook for few minutes.
When all tomato pieces have become soft & look as a sauce, add thick coconut milk.
Adjust salt to taste. Allow for simmer few minutes in low flame.
If you want more gravy, add some water or if you do not like, make the gravy to dry.
