Potato Gravy

    Potatoes were first introduced outside the Andes region four centuries ago, and have become an integral part of much of the world's cuisine.The annual diet of an average global citizen in the first decade of the 21st century included about 33 kg (73 lb) of potato. In terms of nutrition, the potato is best known for its carbohydrate content (approximately 26 grams in a medium potato). Let's see a very easy but delicious recipe of potato.


Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Oil - 1 tbsp
Chopped Onions - 1
Boiled and peeled potatoes chopped - 2
Chili powder - 2 tsp
Tomatoes chopped - 1
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Salt as per taste
Turmeric powder - 1 pinch
Coriander leaves - 1 tbsp


1) Heat oil in a pan, splutter the mustard seeds.
2) Add the onions and fry for 2-3 minutes.
3) Now add in the chopped tomatoes, chili powder, coriander powder, salt and turmeric powder and mix nicely.
4) Then add the potatoes and cook nicely, till all the spices mix in nicely. This will take about 5-6 minutes.
5) Garnish with coriander leaves.


1) Can add boiled peas for a more delicious gravy.
2) Adding in cashew nuts also give a unique flavor.
3) Pressure the potatoes for two whistles or microwave them for 7 minutes to help increase the speed of cooking.
