Ingredients to make Simple Aloo Curry

  • potatoes - 3 (1 mashed and 2 cubed)
  • onion - 1 medium finely chopped
  • tomato paste - 3/4th cup
  • salt- to taste
  • green chillies - 2 slit lengthwise
  • red chilly Powder- 1 tsp
  • Garam masala- 1 tsp
  • coriander Powder- 1 tsp
  • water - 1/2 cup
  • coriander- small bunch chopped
  • oil- 2 tbsps
  • ginger Garlic Paste - 1 tsp
  • cumin Seeds- 1 tsp
  • asafoetida- 1 pinch

How to make Simple Aloo Curry

  1. Add oil to a pan and pop in cumin seeds. Then add asafoetida and green chilies, Fry for a minute. To this add chopped onions and fry until they tin transparent.
  2. Add in ginger-garlic paste and when the raw smell disappears add tomato paste along with all spice powders.
  3. Cook for few minutes until raw smell subsides. Add mashed potatoes and stir. Now add cubed potatoes and stir till potato pieces are neatly coated with masalas.
  4. Cover and cook by adding water for 3-4 minutes or till you get desired consistency.
  5. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with soft and hot roti’s
  6. Add spoon of butter to enhance the taste, if you are not dieting.

My Tip:

1) You can replace potato with soya, cauliflower florets or broccoli 2) Mashed aloo is used as a thickener. I don't like watery curries. 3) Feel free to add any masalas, I sometimes use Maggie Hot and sour sauce when tomato paste cooks for that slight tangy taste.
