Potato is a versatile vegetable that adds flavor and taste into any dish it is added to. I like potatoes and have shared plenty of recipes with potato in this blog. And today’s recipe is of a quick and easy potato curry that is flavourful, delicious and goes well with chapati, paratha, pashte or dosa.


2 potatoes skin peeled and cut into medium size cubes
1 onion finely chopped
2 tbsp oil
1 inch cinnamon stick
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp garlic paste
1 tsp ginger paste
3 tomatoes deseeded and pureed
1 tsp lemon juice
¾ tsp salt (or to taste)
½ tsp red chili powder
¼ tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp coriander powder
½ tsp garam masala powder
Handful of Coriander leaves


  • Heat oil in a non stick pan; add onions, cumin seeds and cinnamon stick and sauté for a few minutes till the onions turn golden brown.
  • Add ginger and garlic paste and sauté for a few seconds till the raw smell goes.
  • Now add red chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder and salt and mix well.
  • Add kasuri methi and the tomato puree and mix well.
  • Continue cooking for 5 to 10 minutes in medium flame till oil starts separating and the raw smell of tomatoes has gone.
  • Add the potatoes, garam masala powder and coriander leaves along with 2 to 3 cups of water and mix well.
  • Bring the curry to a boil, then reduce heat and close a lid. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes till the potatoes are cooked.
  • Add lemon juice and boil for a minute.
  • Check for taste. Add salt or chilli powder if necessary.
  • Adjust the thickness of the curry according to your preference.
