BM #1 - AAE - Day 12 - Hot Puri's With Potato Curry - Puri Aloo

What do you do when you are so caught up at work and other things that you forget to do your vegetable shopping? Run to your favorite vegetable, potato, and make something out of it. Simple :-) So if you have just potato, onion and tomato, the basic vegetables, you can churn out an awesome dish. To give a basic simple potato curry a twist and make everyone on the dinner table feel "wow", give it a twist. Serve it with puri rather than your regular roti or paratha. Everybody thinks its an elaborate and filling meal and will thank you for so much of effort :-)


Ingredients:
5 medium sized potatoes, boiled, peeled, cubed,
2 medium sized onions, grated,
2 medium sized tomatoes, grated,
1 tsp cumin seeds,
1 tsp onion seeds,
2 tbsp thick curd,
1-2 tsp red chilli powder,
1 tsp turmeric powder,
1 tsp cumin powder,
1 tsp garam masala powder,
2 tbsp oil,
Salt to taste,


Method:
  1. Heat oil in a pan. Add the cumin and onion seeds and allow it to crackle. Add the grated onions and fry until golden brown.
  2. Add grated tomatoes and fry until the oil separates. 
  3. Add the turmeric powder, red chilli powder, cumin powder, salt and mix well. Add about quarter cup of water and keep frying. 
  4. Add the curd and keep stirring. 
  5. Add the cubed potatoes and mix well. Ensure that the potatoes don't start to break.
  6. Adjust water, add garam masala powder, and salt as per taste. Bring it to a boil.
  7. Garnish with green coriander and serve hot.
