baby-potato-curry

This recipe is an “everything but the kitchen sink” kind of a potato masala. It has a lot of ingredients going on in this recipe. Its a very flavorful side dish and it goes well with roti or rice. Here is how to do it.

I have a small tip for easily peel-able potatoes. Starting the potatoes in hot water instead of cold water makes for easy peel potatoes. Boil a liter of water. Add in a teaspoon of salt. The potatoes gets well seasoned if it is cooked with salt.

Add in the cleaned and washed baby potatoes to the pressure cooker. Cook for 2 whistles in medium flame. It should take about 7-8 minutes. Do not cook for more than 2 whistles as we need firm potatoes. Switch off the flame and wait for the pressure to release naturally.

Open the cooker and drain the water. Add cold water to the potatoes so they are easy to peel. Peel the potatoes. Set aside.

Saute till the mixture is well browned and reduced considerably in volume. The onions should caramelize well and should have reduced to almost half of its original volume.

  1. It turned out good but a few potatoes were slightly hard at 3 whistles. Good healthy recipe! Congrats!






  2. What a lovely recipe. But we couldnt enjoy it much because of the high spice level. 2 tsp chilli powder and pepper and green chilli made it extremely spicy. I’ve tried a few of your other recipes which seem to have similar high spice levels. Some others have also told me that they have adjusted the levels while making your recipes. Most recipes posted on the internet have been perfect for me. Now running for a glass of buttermilk. I’ll adjust it from the next time.

    1. Any traditional knife would have to be sharpened from time to time. I have a sharpening steel that i use everyday and a sharpening stone i use once in 3 months.

  5. Hi Suguna,
    Love your blog and tried many recipes. I like the way you cut vegetables . It would be useful if you can post an article about knife skills.
    I like to buy a chef’s knife from wusthof range. Can you suggest me ?

    Thanks
