Poori and Potato Masala - "Your Recipe Rocks"



Yesterday when I was blogging, I saw Suma's poories. It tempted me so much and I did it last night :)

I followed the same recipe as
here, except that I roll the dough into a big chapathi and cut them into four pieces.

So my poories will be always in 'Triangle' shape. This is my mom's technic of saving time and energy in rolling individual poories ;)


I am sending Poories to “Your Recipe Rocks”, an event hosted by Madhuram.

Thanks Suma for reminding Poories :)

I made potato masala as below:

Ingredients:
Potatoes - 2
Onions - 1, finely chopped
Mustard seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
Cumin seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
Urad dal - 1 teaspoon
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tablespoon
Curry leaves - few
Asafoetida powder - a pinch
Green chillies - 3, cut into small pieces
Coriander leaves - few
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Salt to taste
Oil - 1 tablespoon


Method:
Wash potatoes and boil them for 10 minutes in microwave. Peel the skin, mash them and allow them to cool.

Heat oil in a pan, once it is hot, allow mustard seeds to splitter in it.

Add urad dal, cumin seeds, asafoetida powder, curry leaves, green chillies, onions and fry until onions are pale.

Then add gnger garlic paste, turmeric powder and fry until raw smell goes off.

Add mashed potatoes and sufficient water for gravy consistency.

Once it comes to boiling stage, add salt and mix well.

Switch off the flame and garnish with coriander leaves.

Tasty curry for poories and dosa.

Note:
While cooking potatoes in microwave, add sufficient water so that potatoes are immersed completely in water.


Cooking time - 20-30 minutes
Serves - 2 persons


I am sending Potato Masala to "Curry Mela" an event hosted by Srivalli.

Sometimes I really feel we bother too much about the shapes when we can get the best with some common sense!! Your mom did a really good thing:) I have also seen that triangular parathas fill up so well:)
