POTATO STRINGS GRAVY


This is a very quick to make side dish.

INGREDIENTS:

Potatoes - 3
Onion - 2
Tomatoes- 2
Green chillies - 1 or 2
Ginger - a very small piece
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp.
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp.
Chilli powder - 1/4 tsp.
Dhania powder - 1 tablespoon
Garam masala - 1 tsp.
Oil - 1 tablespoon
Butter or ghee - 1 tablespoon
Salt - as per taste
Coriander leaves - few

METHOD:

Peel potatoes, shred or grate to long, neat pieces (like a matchstick) and transfer it to a bowl of water to prevent discolouration. Julienne onions. Grind tomatoes, ginger and green chillies to a paste.

Heat oil and butter in a pan, add cumin seeds, onions and turmeric powder. When translucent, add the ground paste. Saute till it diffuses the raw smell. Add in the potato strings, saute in high flame for a minute, sprinkle some water and cook covered. Stir in between to prevent charring. When 3/4th done add salt, chilli powder, dhania powder and garam masala. Saute for a while till crunchy (The potato strings should be visible and not mushy). Garnish with coriander leaves. Serve hot with any Indian flat bread.

  44. Hi
    I made this dish,but the taste was disappointing...the potato was mushy and had a raw smell...I may try it without gravy for better result next time.Thanks for all the recipes.
