These yummy potatoes go very well with hot rotis, nan, steamed rice, or garlic bread. You might need to adjust the amount of chilli powder and chillies to suit your taste, because it is a moderately spicy dish.
- 1 lb potato, cubed
- 1 1⁄2 cups plain yogurt (or curd)
- 2 green chilies
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon turmeric powder
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon ginger, minced
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (or ghee)
- 1 1⁄2 cups water
- coriander, chopped (to garnish)
- Place a skillet on medium heat and heat the oil/ghee in it.
- When heated, add the minced ginger, and then the chopped onion.
- Saute for a minute.
- Add the potato cubes and fry for a while.
- Reduce the flame to low, cover the skillet, and cook until the potatoes are tender.

- Add the yogurt/curds to the potato mix, and then add the water.
- Mix well and bring it to a boil.

very tasty, I had all the ingredients in my cupboard but not enough potatoes so I made up the potatoe quantity with cauliflower..this will be a regular on our table.
This was good, but next time I will increase the amount of potatoes and decrease the water. Using the amounts listed in the recipe gave me almost a soup and the flavors seemed to be diluted. We coped, however, by sopping up the extra juices with bread, and it was definitely a success.
nice recipe but i felt something was either less or more. i liked the gravy the most but the potatoes didnt taste that nice. they had no flavor in them, just like plain boiled potatoes. i added some cumin seeds and mustard seeds also while frying the onions to give it added flavour.
