Fatafat Aloo

Back to our recipes, and here is another North Indian curry. A gravy curry, as the name suggests it a quick and instant preparation. Thank you Parul for the wonderful recipe.

Preparation time: 25-30 mins

Serves 2

Potatoes 2
Tomatoes 2
Cardomom(Balck Elaichi) 1
Cumin seeds 1tsp
Red chilli powder 1 tsp
Coriander(Dhania) powder 1 tsp
Garam masala 1 tsp
Refined cooking oil 4 tsp
Pinch of turmeric
Salt to taste
Fresh Coriander to garnish


Wash and dice the potatoes into cubes. Grate the tomatoes

In a pressure cooker add 4 tsp cooking oil. Once the oil is hot add cumin seeds (jeera/jeelakarra) and once they splutter add the cardamom (kaali/badi elaichi) and saute once.

Add the grated tomatoes and allow to cook properly. This may take upto 4-5 mins.Add salt to taste and leave the tomatoes to turn into a saucy paste. This may take 1-2 mins.

Add red chilli powder, coriander (dhania) powder, a pinch of turmeric and garam masala and mix well.

Now add the diced potato cubes and mix well. Add 1/4th to ½ a cup water (depending on the consistency of the gravy required) and close the pressure cooker and cook upto 3 whistles.

Once done, take into serving dish and garnish with fresh coriander.

Fatafat aloo is a saucy,spicy side dish that tastes great with any of the Indian Bread. But it tastes greatest with flavored rice or even plain rice.
