Ingredients

Directions

Step 1

Heat oil in a kadai.

Step 2

Splutter the mustard seeds.

Step 3

Add the chopped onions and curry leaves.

Step 4

When the onions become transparent, add the diced tomatoes and stir cook until the tomatoes turn pulpy.

Step 5

Add the mashed potatoes, turmeric powder, salt to taste and the atta water.

Step 6

:- DO NOT add too much of atta, since it would spoil the flavour. Just half a tsp would do. This is to get the thickness and glazed look.

Step 7

Add a little water to just cover the potatoes and cook covered until the mixture becomes a gravy.

Step 8

Check for salt and remove fire.

Step 9

:- Serve with pooris and chapathis.

Step 10

:- You can thicken the gravy to a dry consistency and use this as masala for masala dosas too.

Step 11

Happy cooking :)

This is a perfect side dish for puris..adding a little bit of wheat flour is a nice trick to get a glossy finish to the curry.
