I've decided to start a new post section for Weekend Cooking. I usually try to cook a complete meal on Friday nights and Saturdays. The rest of the days it usually ends up being curry and roti, after a long day at work. Here is my first plate...
1. White Rice
2. Mango Dal (not pictured)
3. Simple Potato Curry (see below for the recipe)
4. Tomato Chutney (bought it in India)
5. Tomato Rasam
6. Curd/Yogurt (not pictured)
7. Papad (not pictured)
These can, of course, also be made on the week days, but I usually don't have the time or energy to make them :)
For the simple Potato Curry
2 medium Potatoes - finely cubed
Red Chilli Powder
Optional: Microwave the chopped potatoes for about 3 to 4 minutes in a microwave safe bowl, this will help decrease the cooking time.
At the same time, heat some oil in a cooking pan and add the tadka ingredients. Now add in the cooked potato pieces, a pinch of turmeric, salt and red chilli powder. Fry the pieces until they are a little brown and take it off heat. Ready to serve.
