Step by Step Photos on how to make Potato Masala:
- Boil Potatos. Pressure Cook for 3 whistles. I prefer to cook in hot water as I feel the nutrients in the vegetable are lost in pressure cooking.
- Stop cooking the potatoes when the cracks starts appearing in the potatoes.
- Peel Potatos and chop them roughly.
- Add Oil in a pan and heat it. Add Mustard and allow it to splutter. Add Onion and Curry Leaves. Cook until the onion becomes glossy.
- Add the mashed potatoes and roast for 3 minutes.
- Grind Coconut, Fennel Seeds and Green Chillies and grind it into a paste.
- Add the ground paste into the Pan. Add Turmeric Powder. Add Salt to taste. Add Water. Cook for 10 minutes in low flame or until the gravy cooks well.
