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

Sugar: 1 tsp.

Water: 1.5 cups.

To Garnish:

  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.

Hi This is my chance to introduce myself. I am Parvathi, the author/owner of this space. I blog here about recipes that are simple yet tasty. I try to improvise on recipes without compromising on taste. Cooking is my passion. Though I am not very perfect, I love the imperfections and as they say “there’s always scope of better”. I like to follow that. I believe there’s a story for each recipe and the way it is developed. Also creativity is the secret ingredient of cooking. My inspiration for cooking comes from my mom. As cliched as it sounds, for me she is the best cook. 🙂 Cooking for me is a stress buster. Hoping this space help you too whip some amazing dishes and earn praises from your loved ones.
