This is my mom’s recipe. I make this twice a week for my daughter.She loves this curry a lot. Its very simple to prepare .Tastes the best with dal rice & rasam rice. I’ve given the quantity of chilly powder according to my doter’s taste. I make it less spicy. Please adjust as per ur tastebuds .
ALOO PORIYAL

  1. Potato – 4 nos ( If medium sized)
  2. Big onion -  1 no (finely chopped )
  3. Ginger – 1/2 inch piece (-do-)
  4. Garlic cloves – 5  nos (-do-)
  5. Chilly powder – 1 tsp ( U can replace with sambar powder)
  6. Turmeric powder – 1/8 tsp
  7. Salt – As needed
  8. Curry leaves – a few
  9. Mustard seeds – 1/4 tsp
  10. Urad dal – 1/4tsp
  11. Jeera – 1/4 tsp
  12. Cooking oil – 2 tbsp
  13. Coriander leaves – to garnish
  14. Lime juice – a few drops.

METHOD
  • Pressure cook potatoes with little turmeric powder.
  • Cut into bite sized pieces. In a kadai , heat oil and temper with mustard seeds , urad dal & jeera.
  • Add the finely chopped onions , ginger & garlic pieces , curry leaves and saute for few mins.
  • Then add the potato cubes , turmeric powder, chilly powder and salt.
  • Toss well for few minutes and finally garnish with coriander leaves. Switch off the flame and add a few drops of lime juice.Mix well and serve.
Serve with rice . It goes well with lemon rice too…


Note :My mom adds G&G paste. But we don’t like it.So i add pieces of G&G.If u want u can add garam masala powder at the end to make it more flavourful. The same can be used as a stuffing for masala dosa, stuffed buns etc. It tastes good with roti..
