Potato, Tomato, and Capsicum Spicy Dry Curry
An Overview of Making Potato, Tomato, and Capsicum Spicy Dry Curry
When I don't feel up to cooking for a long time, I like to make dry curries. For dry curry, you don't need ground masala paste. You can make use of dry spice powders here, which will cut down the cooking time. These spice powders are available in Indian stores.
I used tomato, potato, onion, and capsicum in this recipe. You can try with some other vegetables also. For these curries, tomato and onion are the common ingredients. I stir-fried the vegetables in oil and added spice powders. The curry came out awesome. I share the recipe with you below.
- 2 cups potatoes, cut in medium size cubes
- 1 cup capsicum, cut in pieces
- 1/2 cup tomato, cut in pieces
- 1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
- 1 tsp mustard seeds
- 1/4 tsp dry mango powder(amchur powder), available in Indian stores
- 1/2 tsp coriander powder, available in Indian stores
- 1/2 tsp red chili powder
- 2 pinches turmeric powder
- 1/4 tsp garam masala powder, available in Indian stores
- 1/2 tsp salt, or as per taste
- 2 tsp oil
- 2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
- 2 pinches sugar, optional
Step-By-Step Instructions and Images for Making Potato, Tomato, and Capsicum Spicy Dry Curry
- Cut potatoes in cubes. Immerse them in water. Drain the water. This process helps to remove the extra starch from it.
- Heat oil in a pan. Throw mustard seeds. Let them crackle. Add chopped potato. Stir-fry for 2-3 minutes. Add water just sufficient to cook. Cook till potato becomes soft.
- Add chopped capsicum, tomato, and salt. Mix well. Cook for 3-4 minutes with very less water.
- Add turmeric powder, garam masala powder, coriander powder, sugar (optional) and dry mango powder. Mix well. Stir occasionally and simmer the contents for 2 minutes. Turn off the fire. Throw chopped coriander leaves. Mix well.
- Potato, tomato, and capsicum spicy dry curry is ready to serve. Serve it with roti, parota, chapati, or any flatbread.
- Instead of using coriander powder and garam masala powder, you can use subzi powder/curry powder (available in Indian stores). Using all other spices in the curry remain same.
