BATATE VAAGU /POTATO SPICY CURRY

Batate vaagu is a GSB preparation, mainly prepared at the time of temple festivals and weddings, because it contains no onion and garlic. Last week my sister-in-law gave this recipe to me, since then i was waiting for the right time. I remember, had tasted this curry when I was a little girl and that too at a wedding. The curry is really yummy, goes well with rice or chappatis. The recipe goes like this.....

POTATO SPICY CURRY / BATATE VAAGU


HOW TO MAKE :

Wash potatoes and cut in cubes.

Also cut tomato. If tomato is very sour then no need of adding tamarind. Here i have added tamarind because the tomato was sweet.

Heat a tsp of oil in a small pan. Roast dry red chillies carefully, see that not to burn.

Remove the chillies

Now roast coriander seeds till you get the aroma.

Now grind coconut gratings roasted chillies, roasted, coriander seeds and tamarind along with little water to make a smooth paste.

Then heat a tbsp oil in kadahi, splutter mustard seeds, then add curry leaves.

Add cubed potatoes, fry for few minutes.

Now add tomato pieces, fry again.

Add ground masala and 1 cup of water to it. 

Add salt, cover and cook till potatoes are cooked.

The curry should be thick, having very little gravy.

Serve Batate vaagu as side dish./ chappati/Rotis.
