The Yummy ‘Potato Masala’

 The Yummy ‘Potato Masala’

You have your rice or roti ready but do not have a main dish for it? Do not worry. Our very own potato will rescue you. The dish has a great taste to it when prepared the right way, and it is very novice-friendly. Here’s how you single-handedly prepare Potato Masala.
This is all you require:
6 medium sized potatoes
2 tomatoes
4 onions
2 green chillies
Groundnut/Sunflower / Olive Oil
Ginger garlic paste, Garam Masala, Red chilli powder, Salt and coriander leaves (Coles)
Once you have everything ready, follow these simple steps to prepare your dish.
Step 1: Boil the potatoes alone for about 30 minutes in a vessel. If you use a pressure cooker, boil it until 4 whistles are blown. Remove the peel of the boiled potatoes, cut them into bite size pieces and keep it aside.
Step 2:  Chop the onion into small pieces.
Step 3: Add 5 spoons of oil to the pan and heat it up for some time.Once white vapours erupt, you’re ready to add onions to it. Don’t get startled by the catastrophic reaction of oil and onions and put it in a medium flame. Cook for 10-15 minutes until the colour of the onions changes to light brown.
Step 4:  Now add 1 tablespoon of ginger garlic paste. Continue heating it up until it changes to golden brown colour.
Step 5: Add finely sliced greenchillies along with the tomato pieces. Add a glass of water and continue heating in a low-medium flame.
Step 6: Add potato pieces to the pan. Stir the contents of the pan to mix them properly.
Step 7: Add 2-3 spoons of red chilli powder (depending on your tolerance level for spicy food), 2 tablespoons of salt, and a tablespoon of Garam Masala Powder. Stir well.
Step 8: Continue heating in a medium flame for 15- 20 mins. Constant monitoring is not required at this stage. Just make sure you stir every few minutes to ensure even heating.
Step 9: Add finely chopped coriander leaves and switch off the flame. Keep aside for 5 mins.
There is no step 10! The dish is ready. You can take pride in your preparation and can even give a pat to yourself for this achievement (If you are preparing anything for the first time). Do not forget to relish that great taste.
