Potato Curry (Aaloo Curry)

 This aaloo curry is very simple yet satisfying side dish with bread, roti, puri or rice. When I do not feel like eating any vegetables I make this simple and quick dish. Its has very rich and creamy gravy.

  • Wash and scrub potatoes, leave the skin on, cut in large cubes.
  • Heat oil in pressure cooker over medium high heat, add cumin seeds and mustard seeds and let it get brown and splutter.
  • Add chopped onions followed by garlic, ginger and bay leaves, cook until onions are lightly brown.
  • Add chopped tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, turmeric powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder and salt to taste and cook until oil separates.
  • Now add cubed potatoes and water and close the lid and cook until 2 whistle.
  • Let the cooker cool and then open the lid.
  • Add 2 tablespoon of curd or yogurt to make creamy gravy.
  • Serve hot with rice and rotis/indian bread.


Note – You can also use a deep pan with lid to cook this. I use pressure cooker as it is easier and quick.
