Kanda batata Rassa

This is one easy, comfort curry that leaves me wanting for more. Goes great with chapatis or can be eaten by mixing with plain rice. J  The tanginess of tomatoes with the potatoes makes a great combo.Made without onions and garlic, this can be made on fast days too.

Do try this and share your thoughts.



Here goes the recipe:


Potatoes: 2 diced

Tomatoes: 3 finely chopped

Red chili powder: 2 tsp.

Oil: 1 tbsp.

Mustard seeds: 1 tsp.

Hing: a pinch

Curry Leaves: a spring.

Turmeric powder: 1 tsp.

Salt to taste

Sugar: 1 tsp.

Water: 1.5 cups.

To Garnish:

Coriander leaves: 2 tbsp chopped.



  1. Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds.
  2. Add turmeric powder, hing.
  3. Add tomatoes, red chili powder, salt and cook till the tomatoes turn mushy.
  4. Add the potatoes, water and cook till potatoes are cooked.
  5. Garnish with coriander leaves
  6. Serve hot.





Hi, I am Kavita, the owner of this blog.There are many types of foodies; vegeterian, non vegetarian, eggeterian , so i thought foodies should be called "foodaterian". Hence the name.Like most of you, i too was an amateur cook who didn't know even the basics like how much water to be added to rice?. :) With time i have learned and would like to share and learn the recipes. Hope to get love and support from all you wonderful people. You can reach me at twitter:
