Aloo mudda kura/ Alugadda pidippu/ Mashed Potato curry
This type of potato curry is very easy to make and tastes yummy with white rice or with chappatis or rotis. I like to eat it with pulihora too. This recipe can also be used as a filling for aloo bonda or aloo paratha(minus the onions...it will be difficult to roll it out with onions).
2 large potatoes
1 chopped onion (cut lengthwise or chopped...your wish)
3-4 thai green chillies (chopped)
1 tbsp of channa dal
1 tbsp of urad dal
1/4 tsp of mustard seeds
1/4 tsp jeera
2-3 red chillies
5-6 curry leaves
1/4 turmeric powder
salt to taste
1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
You can 1/2 tbsp grated ginger if you wish...it tastes good with or without it!!
1 tbsp oil or more if you like :)
Boil or bake the potatoes and peel them when cool and mash. I directly bake them the microwave to make it easy. In a pan, heat the oil for tempering. Add channa dal, urad dal, mustard seeds, jeera. Let the seeds splutter before adding red chillies, curry leaves and green chillies (you can add the ginger here). Add onions and fry till light brown color. Add turmeric powder and stir before adding the mashed potatoes and salt. Stir until everything is mixed properly. Garnish with the chopped coriander leaves.
And there you go...Mashed potato curry is ready. Enjoy!!!
