Aloo tamatar ka saalan / Simple Potato-tomato curry

Aloo Tamatar ka saalan is a very simple and flavorful curry, goes well with chapatis and rice.
Here the potatoes are cooked in spiced gravy of onions and tomatoes. I like to have this curry with jowar roti, tastes awesome.



 Ingredients :

  1. Potatoes - 2 medium sized (quartered)
  2. Tomatoes - 4-5 (chopped)
  3. Onions - 1 medium (chopped)
  4. Coriander - 1/2 bunch (chopped)
  5. Green chillies -2-3 (chopped)
  6. Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
  7. Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  8. Ginger-garlic paste - 1 tsp
  9. Salt - to taste
  10. Oil - 1 tbsp




Method :

  1.  Heat oil in a cooking vessel and add chopped onions and saute till the onions turn transparent and light pinkish in color.
  2. Now add ginger-garlic paste and fry, add red chilli powder, turmeric powder, salt and mix well.
  3. Add chopped tomatoes and stir fry till the oil separates and the tomatoes become soft and pulpy.
  4. Now add potatoes, mix and cook for 2 minutes.
  5. Stir in the chopped coriander and green chillies.
  6. Add enough water and cook on a medium heat till the potatoes are done.
  7. After the potatoes are done add a little water to get the desired curry consistency, cook for another 2-3 minutes and remove.
  8. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
  9. Serve hot with chapatis or rice.


                                 Enjoy and Good luck :)
