Potato Curry # 2

If you haven't figured it out yet, I just love potatoes! I could eat them every day. Here's another version of the potato curry. I'm sure more will come later.


4 large Potatoes
1/2 Onion - finely chopped
5 Green Chillies
a pinch Turmeric
Chilli Powder - optional
2 tsp Cumin Powder
2 tsp Garam Masala
1/2 tsp Lime Juice
2 tbsp Oil


Mustard Seeds
Urid Dal
Channa Dal
Red Chillies


Peel and cube potatoes and put them in the microwave for about 6 minutes (this just helps the curry cook faster, but isn't necessary, if you have a lot of time on your hands).
In a pan, heat oil and add the tadka ingredients. When the mustard seeds splutter, add the onion and green chillies.
After the onion turn translucent, add in the potatoes and let them brown a little.
Add in the turmeric, salt, garam masala and cumin powder. Chilly powder can also be added at this time if you prefer spicy food.
Add the lime juice. Be sure not to cook the lime juice for too long or add too much because it will turn the curry bitter.
Serve warm with rice or roti.
