South Indian Style Potatoes with Chapatti
Add a new dimension to the sukhe aloo by using some spices from down South.
Boil potatoes and cut them into small pieces. In a pan, take some vegetable oil and add mustard seeds when it is hot. To this add a pinch of asafetida and some curry leaves. After about half a minute, add 1 tsp of turmeric, red chilli powder and coriander powder. Now add the boiled potatoes and cook for two minutes. Now add some amchoor powder to the potatoes and cook for another minute.
Pack them with the nutritious rotis for a healthy lunch at work!
Desi Potato Tacos
This is a great way to turn your chapattis into delicious tacos.
Don’t use fresh chapatti for this one. Use the one that has been made at least 6-8 hours before.
For the stuffing, boil two potatoes and mash them with 150 gm of cottage cheese.
In a pan, heat some vegetable oil and add some cumin seeds along with ginger garlic paste and one finely chopped onion. Fry them till golden brown and then add one chopped tomato to the pan. Now mix 1 tsp each of red chillipowder, coriander powder, turmeric powder and garam masala. Add salt to taste and cook the mixture until the tomatoes turn soft. Add the potato-paneer mix and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Take the pan off the burner and spread the stuffing on half of the roti.
Fold the roti to form a half circle. Now take some oil in a pan and fry the desi taco till the roti turns golden brown from both sides. Enjoy the taco with ketchup or coriander chutney!
Curd Potatoes with Chapatti
This is one recipe that I personally find absolutely lip-smacking. Boil potatoes and cut them into cubes.
In a pan, heat some oil and add cumin seeds along with two bay leaves. Now add ginger-garlic-green chilli paste to the pan and fry for 2 minutes. If you like peanuts, add coarsely crushed peanuts and some sesame seeds to this mixture. It’s time to add red chilli powder and some turmeric powder now. Mix well and then add beaten curd into the pan. Make sure the curd is fresh and not sour.
Cook for another 2-3 minutes before adding the potatoes. Stir well and cover for 3-4 minutes. Stir occasionally and then in the end, add finely chopped coriander. Pack this delectable dish with rotis to your office for a delicious lunch!
