It is a pure veg curry made using diced potatoes in onion tomato gravy. This aloo curry is widely made all across south india and it can be made with many variations.
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 number of recipes can be made in every form.
Aloo is a vegetable liked by most of the people and it is often used in making veg curries with different vegetable combinations like aloo palak, aloo baingan curry, hyderabadi veg biryani, 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.

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.

2.After adding water and coriander leaves, just pressure cook the curry and its done...
3.Adding curry leaves into the curry is totally optional and can be skipped if not required.
4.I have added chopped tomatoes, but one can even add tomato puree instead of tomatoes to make the gravy.
5.A pinch of crushed kasuri methi too can be added at the end to enhance the fragrance and flavor of the curry.
