Simple Potato Tomato Curry

There are times when you are tired after a hard days work and wish to finish cooking in a second. This recipe is the best bet for those days. This is one of S's bachelor-days inventions. He revealed this secret to me on a day when I was too tired to go to the kitchen. You can have it either with rice or rotis. Here it's for you.Ingredients
  • 2 finely chopped onions
  • 1 finely chopped tomato
  • 1 green chilli cut into 4 pieces
  • 4 boiled potatoes cut into small cubes
  • 1/2 tsp jeera
  • 1 tsp garam masala/MDH Kitchen King powder
  • 1/2 tsp dry mango powder (aamchoor powder)
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 cup water
  • Salt to taste


  • Heat oil in a kadhai and add jeera
  • Once jeera starts fluttering, put onions and saute till golden brown
  • Then add tomato and saute till it becomes tender
  • Now add the garam masala/MDH Kitchen King powder and mix well
  • Then add water, green chilli and dry mango powder and bring it to a boil. You can decrease the quantity of water if you want to serve it with rotis
  • Now add the potato cubes and salt
  • Cover the lid and cook till done

It doesn't take any time to make and tastes great.
