  • Heat oil in a kadai.
  • Splutter the mustard seeds.
  • Add the chopped onions and curry leaves.
  • When the onions become transparent, add the diced tomatoes and stir cook until the tomatoes turn pulpy.
  • Add the mashed potatoes, turmeric powder, salt to taste and the atta water.
  • :- DO NOT add too much of atta, since it would spoil the flavour. Just half a tsp would do. This is to get the thickness and glazed look.
  • Add a little water to just cover the potatoes and cook covered until the mixture becomes a gravy.
  • Check for salt and remove fire.
  • :- Serve with pooris and chapathis.
  • :- You can thicken the gravy to a dry consistency and use this as masala for masala dosas too.
  • Happy cooking 🙂

    This is a perfect side dish for puris..adding a little bit of wheat flour is a nice trick to get a glossy finish to the curry.
