Baby Potatoes in Red Coriander Sauce

Print Friendly and PDF
When I saw this recipe in Nag's blog almost 2 months back I liked the simplicity of ingredients used in making this curry , I tried it almost immediately but forgot posting it and was lying in my drafts from so long.The curry was so simple and flavorful which was made with minimun effort and ingredients available at home.However I modified the recipe a little bit to suit our taste buds,I added fried onions to the curry in order to balance the tangyness from the tamarind pulp and it turned out to be a perfect combination with roti's.

Ingredients:


12-15 baby potatoes
2 medium onions,finely sliced
1 1/2 tsp coriander seeds

1 1/2 tsp jeera seeds
4 garlic cloves
2 tbsp thick tamarind pulp
1 pureed tomato

A sprig of curry leaves
1/2 tsp sugar
2 tbsp oil

Salt to taste

Coriander leaves to garnish

Method:
  • Boil the potatoes in water or pressure cook for 2 whistles.Let them cool.Peel the skin.
  • Grind the coriander seeds with cumin seeds and garlic cloves to a coarse paste.
  • Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan add ground paste,tamarind pulp and tomato puree,salt,sugar and curry leaves.Cook on low flame until oil separates.
  • Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan and caramelize the sliced onions on medium flame until golden brown in color.Add a pinch of sugar to it while frying.
  • Add potatoes to the gravy and stir well and cook for 2 mins.Add fried onions to it and mix well.Reserve some fried onions for garnish.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves and some fried onions.
Serve it hot with roti's or pulao's.

Dear Pavithra
Wonderful dish indeed. I feel the cumin will overpower the coriander falvour, but still it will be awesome, Ican imagine the taste. Now it is fresh Potato season and I am going to make it...

Ashwini said...

Hi,
Made this yesterday for chappatis and they came out lovely...the caramalized onions take the dish to a totatlly different level..i just had one doubt..do we need to add chilli powder or chillies?

Prathibha said...

@Ashwini .. I am glad that you liked it..I did not add either chillies r chili powder in the recipe.The flavors r balanced with the other masalas,you can add chili powder to the sauce if you want to make it more spicy.
