Potato Curry Recipe

The most simplest, easiest curry which does not need much ingredients and can be prepared in a jiffy. There can hardly be anyone who does not love potatoes. This curry goes well with all Indian breads - roti, chappati and poori. It can be used as a stuffing for sandwich toast and also goes well with rice. I have given two methods of preparing this dry version of potato curry, both of which tastes great. I have used vegetable curry powder, though you can use even plain chilli powder and coriander powder, but using curry powder gives the curry a very nice flavor and taste. Today we will learn how to make potato curry-South Indian Style following this easy recipe.

  55. I stay in hostel and making curry powder is a wasteful process for me since I don’t use it in most of the dishes. Can you suggest a substitute for curry powder which will give similar taste, something which is better than plain chili powder?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Instead of curry powder, you can add coriander powder + chilli powder
