Potato curry shared with a video procedure here is suitable to be eaten with rice, roti or poori. It is a pure veg curry made using diced potatoes in onion tomato gravy. This aloo curry is widely made all across the Southern India and it can be made with many variations.
About the recipe
This curry is in gravy form which is suitable to be eaten with chapathi, phulka or poori and can even be mixed with rice recipes.
In some parts aloo curry is slightly tempered at the beginning of the cooking process but here I have not given any tempering and made the curry suitable to be made in all parts of India.
We often use aloo to make various recipes and aloo is one such vegetable with which a number of recipes can be made in every form.
Aloo is a vegetable liked by most people and it is often used in making veg curries with different vegetable combinations like aloo baingan curry, aloo matar etc...
I can't end the list of making aloo recipes and it is one of the favorite vegetables for most of them.
I would love to update many more aloo recipes on the blog as I continue blogging.
Making the curry
Here, to make potato curry, I have added onions and tomatoes chopped and this gives a good gravy to the curry. If more gravy is required then, we can add little more water to the curry to get a perfect gravy consistency.
If we want the gravy to thicken, slow cook the gravy and it thickens completely.
All the veg curry recipes are very simple and easy in making procedure and requires few ingredients to make.
Below are the recipe details to make this delicious potato curry in gravy form along with a video procedure.
