Potato Curry

When I think of spicy vegetarian side dish, "Potato Curry" comes to my mind. Its my mother's recipe. 
My Mom used to make this quite often during my school days and it is one my favorite !! 
I  remember during my college days, that this was a popular dish. My friends still do ask for this recipe and that why I am sharing it with everyone !!

Preparation time - 20 minutes


4 Potatoes, chopped 
1 tsp. Mustard seeds
1 tsp. Urad Dal (optional)
1 strand Curry leaves
1/2 tsp. Turmeric powder
3/4 tsp. Red chili powder
4 tsp. Oil


  • Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds and Urad dal. When mustard seeds start to crackle, add curry leaves, turmeric and red chili powder, and then add 2 tsp of water to prevent burning of dry ingredients
  • Add potatoes and mix well until masala has evenly coated potatoes. Cover the pan with a lid or a plate and in medium heat setting, cook for 10 minutes. Stir often
  • When potatoes are partially cooked, add salt and cook for another 8 to 10 minutes
  • Serve hot
Most popular combinations of potato curry are Curd rice, chapati, rice and rasam, rice and sambhar
