Potato Onion Curry

Quick, Easy, and Delicious

I make this awesome curry when I feel too lazy to make an involved side dish. This potato onion side dish is easy and, at the same time, tastes superb.

For making this curry, you have to thoroughly wash the potatoes in water. If the skin is clean, you can chop them as is; otherwise, you have to remove the skin. Immerse the pieces in water. Strain them. This will remove the extra starch in the potato.

Heat some oil in a deep-bottomed pan. Throw mustard seeds into it. Let them crackle. Add curry leaves. Add chopped onions and green chilies. Saute on low fire, till onions turn golden.

Add chopped potatoes. Stir-fry for 2-3 minutes. Add some turmeric powder, sugar, and salt. Mix well. Pour a cup of water. Cook it covered on low fire for about 8 minutes or till potatoes become soft and not mushy. By this time, the water should be almost gone. Throw in finely chopped coriander leaves. Squeeze lemon. Mix well. Turn off the fire.

Potato onion curry is ready to serve! Use this side dish with pancakes, rotis, fried rice, curd rice, or any other main course menu. They taste yummy on their own!
