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

batata nu shaak recipe

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.

this simple dish of batata nu shaak also goes well as a tiffin box breakfast or lunch with rotis. you can also stuff them in bread and make toast sandwiches.

  1. Love your Indian recipes thank you so much 😊

  2. if the potatoes are boiled then what will be the change?
    I always like such recipes which require so minimal ingredients

    • ruchi, just heat oil. then add mustard seeds. once they start crackling, add cumin seeds followed by curry leaves/kadi patta and asafoetida. then switch off the flame and add all the spice powders. add chopped boiled potatoes and salt. you can add some sugar also if you want. saute for a few minutes. then lastly add lemon juice and switch off the flame.

  3. Very simple and effective recipe. Turned out exactly as I would have hoped.
