    magpie diner's Note:

    My old roomie Rukshana sent this to me when she returned home to India, many moons ago. It's hard to say how many it serves, I've only ever made as a side dish. If you're new to dried mango powder, most asian food stores carry it, although I don't think it would be the end of the world if you left it out. I'm sure there are numerous variations to this dish, as is the case with most Indian recipes - this is very simple yet tasty. You might want to adjust the chilies, this is fairly hot. Enjoy!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      The original recipe calls for pressure cooking the potatoes with the peas for 8 minutes. I don't use a pressure cooker, so I just boil the potatoes until tender, adding in frozen peas at the end just to warm them up. Strain and set aside.
    2. 2
      Heat oil over medium and saute the onions till lightly brown. Add the ginger and garlic, green chilies and let it saute together for a few minutes. Add turmeric, chili powder, garam masala, dry mango powder and fry well.
    3. 3
      Add the potatoes to the pan, along with the peas, tomatoes and 1 1/2 cups of water. Salt to taste.
    4. 4
      Simmer on low until the gravy thicken slightly.
    5. 5
      Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve hot.

      Excellent! I did use baby potatoes, red white and purple. So they cooked quickly. One large onion did just fine for this, it was about 2 cups diced.
      Amchur gave this a nice tang. Must say I love turmeric Thanks for staining all my wooden spoons or and hands. :) Served with Salmon in Bengali Mustard Sauce.
      Made for ZWT #8 Team the Lively Lemon Lovelies.

      We really enjoyed this wonderfully flavorful dish. I served it with some Naan bread and my Indian salad (which has apples in it) and its accompanying salad dressing. I was unable to get to my local Indian market in order to find mango powder so I had to leave it out. Made for the Everyday is a Holiday tag, January, 2012.
