Potato Curry

Today is been a rather quiet day. The weather is sooo wonderful here in Calif. Cloudy, little bit drizzly – but not cold. Its like Ooty weather here. Its really great.
The curry for the day is potato curry or urulai puttu. I made a batch of chappathis and froze it yesterday so its just making the puttu and dinner is ready !


1 medium sized onion diced finely
2 green chillies chopped
2 small size potatoes peeled and chopped into 1/2″ pieces
half a medium sized tomato
1/2″ peeled and finely chopped ginger
3 cloves of garlic finely chopped
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
salt to taste
2 tsp oil
For tempering
1 tsp mustard
1 tsp cumin


1) Temper the oil with mustard, cumin. Meanwhile microwave ( or boil ) the potato pieces with a little bit of water for 5 mins
2) After the mustard splutters add chillies, onion, ginger, garlic in the same order
3) After the onion becomes soft add tomato and after a couple of minutes add boiled potato pieces and turmeric
4) Saute for a few minutes – add 1/4 cup water and close with a lid and let it cook for 5 to 8 mins

Enjoy with Chapathis.
