Potato palya recipe with step by step photos – simple potato masala that is served with davangere dosa.

potato palya served in a green colored ceramic bowl with a plate of benne dosa kept on the right side and text layovers.

Davangere benne dosa is a special butter dosa from the city of davangere in central karantaka. The potato palya served with this dosa is very simple and bland in taste. This bland palya accompanies the Spicy coconut chutney very well that is served with Davangere benne dosa.

To make this potato palya, I have just added onions and green chilies. However, if you want you can add some mustard seeds, curry leaves and turmeric powder. The subtle sweetness of the sautéed onions balances the earthy taste of the potatoes very well. Overall what you get is a mild and light tasting potato stuffing, similar to mashed potatoes, which has not been spiced.
