A quick round-up of what I posted this month before I share with you all the yummy potato curry:
Week1: Cake/Cupcake Decoration/Frosting
Week2: Biryani/Pulao Varieties
Week3: Basics
Week4: Dry Curries

  • 1 Sack Baby Potatoes (~22-25 potatoes)
  • 1 Medium Red Onion
  • 2 Medium Ripe Roma Tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp Ginger Garlic Paste
  • 1/2 Tsp Cumin seeds
  • 1 Tbsp Coriander Powder
  • 1 Tsp Garam Masala Powder
  • 1 Tsp Chili Powder less/more
  • 1/2 Tsp Cracked Black Pepper
  • 1/4 Tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 1/3 to 1/2 Cup Water
  • Olive Oil for cooking
  • Salt as needed
  • Cilantro for Garnish 
For Tempering:
  • 1/4 Tsp Mustard Seeds
  • 1 Stalk Curry Leaves
  • 2-3 Pricked Green Chilies
  • Cast-Iron Pan/Kadai
  • Scrub and wash the baby potatoes.
  • Boil the potatoes with skin until they are fork tender.Set aside to cool.
  • Finely chop the onions and tomatoes. In a cast iron pan, add about 3 tbsp of Olive Oil and add the cumin seeds. Add the chopped onions and saute till they are lightly brown. Now add ginger-garlic paste and fry till they lose the raw smell.
  • Add the tomatoes and the powders. Mix to incorporate.Add water and lid the pan. Cook for 5-8 minutes until the tomatoes are onions lose shape. 
  •  Sprinkle salt and check for taste. Add salt if needed. Throw in the potatoes and reduce the flame.
  • Continue to saute until the gravy thickens and starts to cling to the potatoes. 
  • Switch off the stove. In a separate pan, temper mustard seeds, curry leaves, 2 green chilies in a Tsp of Oil and pour it over the potatoes. Mix gently.
  • Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with cilantro.
