Spicy Potato and Tomato subzi/ curry

This is an easy to make, simple yet delicious recipe, that one can make with just two vegetables. I thank my friend Roopa Prabhu for having shared this recipe with me. The best part is it’s ready in no time!


3 potatoes quartered and diced fine/ or you can use the boiled ones too.

3 tomatoes finely chopped

2 green chillies minced

1 tsp Jeera/ cumin seeds

A large pinch of Hing/ asafoetida

A large pinch of Haldi/ turmeric powder

1 tbsp Kasuri methi

2 tbsps finely chopped coriander leaves

1 tbsp Kashmiri Chilly powder

2 tbsps oil



Heat the oil in a pan. Add the Jeera and Hing. Once the Jeera splutters add the chillies, toss and drop in the tomatoes, salt, turmeric and Chilly powders. Saute till the tomatoes turn mushy. Add the potatoes and a glass of water . Bring to a boil, cover and cook till the potatoes are done. Crush the Kasuri methi with your fingers and drop it into the subzi. Allow to simmer for a couple of minutes. Switch off and garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves. Serve with Poori, Paratha or even Dal rice.

Serves four.
