Dahi Batete Nu Shak

This is a mildly spiced, tangy potato curry that is marinated in yogurt and spices. This is my entry for Nupur's - 'A-Z of Indian vegetables' cooking event. This contribution is for the letter 'D'.

1 lb Potatoes
1 cup yogurt
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp coriander powder
A pinch of turmeric
Salt to taste
Oil as needed

1. Boil the potatoes, peel the skin and cut into cubes. You can use baby potatoes for this recipe. I used the regular ones.
2. Mix the curd, ginger garlic paste, red chilli powder, turmeric powder and coriander powder.
3. Add the potatoes to this yogurt mixture and set aside for at least 1/2 hour or more.
4. Pour oil in a pan and transfer the potato-yogurt mixture, add salt and sauté on a medium low heat until the potatoes absorb the yogurt and become brown on all sides.

Yes Swapna. It is easy. Though it looks like potato fry, it has a hint of spices and the tanginess of the yogurt in each piece.

How easy is that and how nice it looks!! Must be tangy with the yogurt and can be as spicy as one wants! Looks really good, LakshmiK!

Looks very appetizing. So did you need a lot of oil to get the crisp exterior of the aloo or did you just keep it on the stove for a lo---ng time?

Lakshmik said...

Hi Nalini

Not to much oil may be around 1-2 tbsps. The yogurt brings out some oil so when frying the aloo that helps too.
