Potato Curry or Simple Aloo curry

A tasty potato curry that goes well with poori / roti /rice and very easy to prepare. This is one of my old-time favorite and in North India it is prepared as  a brunch on holidays .

4-5 cube sized Potatoes

2 finely cut tomatoes

2 tbsp cumin seeds

2 slit green chillies

2 spoon oil

2 cup water

1/2 tbsp coriander powder

1/2 tbsp turmeric

salt as per taste

red pepper as per taste

tari wale aloo  /aloo poori

Heat Oil in a pan and add cumin seeds. Saute it for 1 minute and add finely cut tomatoes.

Add Salt , green chillies, red pepper and saute it for 3-5 minutes. Lower the flame and mash the tomatoes so that there are no pieces or lumps. Add potatoes and saute it for another 2-4 minutes. Add water and add coriander powder and mix it well.

Let it boil till the potatoes are cooked and if you are preparing it in pressure cooker then close the lid and remove the pressure cooker from flame after 1 whistle.

Garnish with cilantro and serve it hot with poori or parantha .

if the curry is too watery then mash the potatoes to make it thick and if there is not enough water then add boiled water to the potatoes.
