Masala Potatoes

This month we celebrating the 100th edition of Blogging marathon. All credit goes to Valli, for being the master mind behind this amazing group and for successfully completing this mile stone. My blog is alive because of BM – it’s the support and enthusiasm of the entire group that keeps me blogging. Big thanks to Valli for reaching 100. I wish you and the group many many more such milestones.

I have been missing in action on my blog for the least couple of months. We are relocating to Denver this summer and the past 2 months have been very hectic and stressful with selling and buying properties. I didn’t think I could participate this month, but since it’s the 100th edition I didn’t want to miss the fun. I have been part of this wonderful group off and on since the second edition way back in 2011.

About the Recipe: 


Coming back to today’s recipe, Bombay potatoes, this is a very simple, everyday dish that my husband and son can eat every single day. They love potatoes that much. I am sure every Indian family has their version of this dish.

I followed Hari Ghotra’s recipe that uses big chunks of potatoes with thinly sliced onions with spices. It’s very easy to make and is great to serve with both rice and Roti. Do try out this version of masala potatoes – I’m sure you will love it.

Lets check out what my fellow marathoners have cooked today for BM# 100.

Instructions
  1. Optional step - Steam or microwave the potatoes until fork tender.
  2. Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan; add mustard seeds and once they start popping, add the curry leaves and cook for 30 seconds.
  3. Next add the onions, green chilies and cook till onions are lightly browned around the edges.
  4. Add the potato cubes, cover and cook till the potatoes are tender, about 12~15 minutes, stirring occasionally. This step would go faster, if the potatoes are pre-cooked.
