potato curry, potato gravy recipe

potato curry is one of those recipes that is full of memories for me. growing up, mom used to make this easy potato curry for all of us. the combo of rice and this delicious potato curry would be comforting and till today its one of my favorite meal.

at home this curry is called a ‘dehati’ curry as the taste of the curry is similar to the simple food made in indian villages. i have been fortunate enough to have meals in the homes of a few villagers and their meals are healthy, nutritious and tasty as well.

this aloo curry recipe is also one of those recipes that you can make in a hurry after a tired day’s work or when have no veggies or lentils in your kitchen. you can also cook the potato curry in a pressure cooker. just reduce the amount of water if making in a pressure cooker. the pressure cooked curry tastes different than one made in pan. for best taste, i would suggest to make this potato gravy in a pan or pot.

there is little extra oil used in this curry and that does make a difference in the overall taste. if you want you can add less oil.

serve potato curry with steamed rice or chapatis or plain parathas.
