The crushed spices and spice powders are the essences of its taste and flavor. Yet the spices are not overwhelming but lend a subtle yet tantalizing taste.

- I have already posted the recipe of South Indian style potato curry for pooris.
- 1 kg potatoes, washed, boiled and peeled
- 400 g / 4 large tomatoes
- 1 tsp coriander seeds/ sabut dhaniya
- 1 tsp cumin seeds/ jeera
- 1 tsp fenugreek seeds/ methi seeds
- 1 tsp fennel seeds / saunf
- 1 tsp turmeric powder
- 1 tsp red chili powder
- 1 tsp coriander powder
- 2 tsp dry mango powder/ aamchur powder
- 2 green chilies
- coriander leaves
- salt as per taste
- sugar 1 tsp
- 1/4 cup / 4 tbsp oil
- 1 cup = 250 ml in our recipes
- First let us prepare the masala for the recipe. For this in a mortar and pestle, take coriander seeds, cumin seeds, fennel seeds and fenugreek seeds. Crush these to a very coarse powder.
- Now let us ready a spice mix. For this, mix together coriander powder, red chili powder and turmeric powder and add a little water and make a paste.
- To this paste, add the crushed seeds and mix well, adding water if needed. This is our masala for the aloo ki sabzi for poori and kachori.
- Now grate the tomatoes. If you do not wish to grate, you can blend them in a mixer. But grating adds a definite texture to the curry.
- Now break the boiled, peeled and cooled down potatoes roughly with your hands.
- Heat oil in a pan.
- When the oil is hot, add in cumin seeds. Do not brown the cumin seeds much.
- Add in the prepared masala mixture after lowering the flame.
- Now stir on low flame for about 1.5 minutes, adding spoonfuls of water if need be.
- Now add in the grated tomatoes. Stir until moisture is absorbed.
- Add salt, sugar, and dry mango powder. Mix well and stir.
- Now, add in the potatoes. Stir for two to three minutes after mixing well.
- If you wish to make a dry sabzi or vegetable, you can serve it at this stage.
- But as we are making gravy, add 3 cups of water. Remember that this curry thickens with time. So, add water accordingly.
- Bring it to a boil and switch off the flame.
- Serve yummy curry with pooris or kachoris.
