Potato Curry with Green Chilly Paste

This is my submission for the event-The Potato Fe(a)st hoasted by DK of

and for the event-Ode to Potato hosted by Sia of


Boiled potatoes-5 medium sized
Green chillies-6
Curry leaves-a few
Chopped onions-2
Ginger-garlic paste-1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder-a pinch
Grated coconut (fresh)-2 tablespoons
Salt-1 tablespoon
Cumin seeds-1 teaspoon
Oil-2 tablespoons


  1. Peel the skin of boiled potatoes and cut them into small pieces.
  2. Grind the green chillies, chopped onions, cumin seeds, fresh coconut and curry leaves into a paste.
  3. Heat the oil in a pan and fry the grinded paste until it turns into brown colour.
  4. Add the ginger-garlic paste, turmeric powder, salt and potato pieces.
  5. Mix well and fry it for two minutes on low flame. Add ¼ cup of water and let it cook for four minutes.
  6. Once the curry becomes thick, turn off the stove. Serve hot with plain rice and rasam. You can serve it with rotis too.

Note: Since we are using green chillies, the curry appears light green in colour.
