Batata Sabji (Potato)

Here is a maharashtrian recipe which I think has a variant in the alu masala made for Dosa(s). This can be used as a filling for a snack item or maybe eaten with rawa pooris or with roti. My husband loves it and I am sure you will like it too.

Batata Sabji
6-7 medium sized potatoes
1 Tsp of Turmeric
1 Tsp of Sugar
5-6 curry leaves
1 Onion - thinly sliced
1 Tsp of Mustard Seeds
Fresh Coriander

Take a pressure cooker and add the potatoes with water. Boil the potatoes in the pressure cooker and keep it aside for them to cool down. Once the potatoes are at room temperature, peel the skin and mash them slightly with the help of a Spatula. Take a heavy bottomed frying pan and add oil. Heat the oil on the gas. Once the oil gets hot, add the onion slices, curry leaves, mustard seeds and Turmeric. Stir them for 30 secs and add the potatoes. Mix well using a Spatula. Add the salt and sugar and fresh coriander. Keep stirring for another 5mins and then put of the gas. Serve it with Roti or Pooris
