Mashed potato curry is very simple dish which is served as a side dish with masala dosa. This curry can also be used as a stuffing for samosa, bread pakoda, or bharwa mirch pakode.
Team it up with dosa and tangy groundnut chutney to make a full course meal.
Mashed Potato curry for dosa / Aaloo ka salan
Heat oil in a wok or cooking pot on medium flame. Add mustard seeds, curry leaves. To this add sliced onion, green chillies and saute for 1 minute.
Add ginger-garlic paste and turmeric powder and saute for 1 minute.
Add the diced potatoes, salt and mix well. Stir fry the potatoes for 1 minute.
Then add water and close the lid. Cook on high flame for 1 minute and then lower the flame to sim mode and cook covered for 15 minutes. This softens the potatoes.
Now with a spatula mash the potatoes roughly. Finally, add coriander leaves. That's it mashed potato curry is ready. Serve hot.
- Do not mash the potatoes completely, mash them roughly leaving some pieces.
- You can use already boiled potatoes instead of using raw diced potatoes. Add only half of the water if using boiled potatoes. The rest procedure is the same.
