Spicy Red Potato Stew

A simple dish but with a lot of flavors. It tastes so good for appam, dosa, chapathi or anything you would imagine. I learnt this from my beloved friend and everytime I make it, I thank her in my heart for  giving this great recipe.

Spicy potato stew


Red potatoes- 6 no

Onion  -1

Green chillies – 4 no

Coconut milk- as needed

Garam masala powder- 1 tsp

Turmeric powder- 1 pinch

Coriander powder- 1 tbsp

Salt- to taste

Cilantro for garnishing

For seasoning:

Oil – 1 tbsp

Mustard seeds- 1 tsp

Urad dall – 1 tsp

Curry leaves – 8-10

Wash the potatoes and brush clean their skin. Dice them into large cubes. Chop the onion and green chillies into tiny pieces. Add salt, turmeric powder,onion and chillies to potatoes and cook them with adequate water  . Cook them on low heat for  a long time in an open vessel. When they are well cooked the water would have thickened,  gathering all the starch from the potatoes.

In another pan, heat oil, sputter mustard seeds, urad dall,  curry leaves in order said. Add  coriander powder, garam masala powder  and the stew. Add coconut milk  and adjust the  spice level  and thickness according to your need. When  the stew comes to a boil, switch off the heat. Garnish with cilantro.
