Then add chopped potatoes, turmeric powder and cook covered stirring in between. Sprinkle water in between.

Once potatoes are half cooked, add chopped carrots, 1/4 cup of water, salt needed and cook covered on medium heat. If using pressure pan, do not put the weight as the carrots will get over cooked.

Once the carrots are half cooked, add the vegetable curry powder, chilli powder and cook until the carrots become tender. If needed you can sprinkle water in between. Check out vegetable curry podi recipe.

This is the South Indian style of making carrot potato curry.

For North Indian sabji, season with jeera/cumin seeds instead of mustard seeds. Add 1 tsp of chilli powder (or as required), 2 tsp of coriander powder, 3/4 tsp of garam masala powder instead of vegetable curry podi. Rest of the procedure is the same.

Garnish with coriander leaves and serve this delicious Carrot Potato curry (North Indian or South Indian style) with rice or rotis.
