Its a known fact that everyone has their own ( family ) recipe for potato fry/aloo curry and i don't think there would be any person in this world who wouldn't love potatoes. Here's my Nanamma's simple spicy aloo fry( potato curry ) recipe which is a delicious way of having potatoes without the added fat and cholesterol from the deep frying. My nanamma is very clever when it comes to cooking, she uses a very little oil for cooking but that doesn't mean any compromise in taste. Oh she makes the best chutneys ( chutney out of every vegetable, you name it!! ). Love you Nanamma!!

  • 2 red potatoes
  • 1 small onion
  • Cilantro for garnishing
  • 2-3 tbsp oil
  • red chilli powder
  • salt
  • mustard seeds
  • cumin seeds
  • curry leaves
  • turmeric
  • 1 tsp garam masala

  • Peel the potatoes and chop into very small pieces, and add to water in a bowl and keep it aside to stop any discoloration
  • In a kadai or skillet add oil, once heated add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, and once they start to crackle add curry leaves followed by potatoes, turmeric and salt.
  • Cook it covered under medium heat, once they are half cooked add chopped onion and saute for little longer until everything is cooked properly
  • Add red chilli powder, garam masala and adjust salt to taste
  • Garnish with cilantro and relish right away!!

You can happily enjoy this potato curry without any guilt along with fresh homemade rotis or steaming hot rice. And potatoes cooked this way is far far better than the french fries and crispy deep fried potatoes.

P.S. Everyone has a unique taste palette, so please adjust the ingredients according to your taste.
