batata nu shaak recipe with step by step photos – no frills easy recipe of dry spiced potatoes made gujarati style.

there are quite a number of ways this dry curry is made. a gravy version is also made, called as rasawala batata nu shaak. i make this dry batata nu shaak, as a side accompanying dish with chapatis. in gujarati language, batata or bateta means potatoes and shaak means curry. hence the translation is potato curry.

the potatoes can be boiled first and then added to the tempered spices or they can be added raw and then sauteed. i always go for the second method, as doing this gives a nice crisp texture to the potatoes, like potato roast.

sugar is often added, but i skip the sugar to suit our taste buds. a variation is to add roasted sesame seeds from top and then mix it well with the rest of the curry. this is a no onion no garlic and vegan version of batata nu shaak. you can also check this lasaniya batata and sev tameta nu shaak recipe.
