Recipe : Mashed Potatoes with spices , recipe adapted from the recipe Broken potatoes with spices from the book Low Fat Indian Cooking by Roshi Razzaq.
3-4 medium potatoes, peeled
1 onion , chopped.
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
6 curry leaves
2 plum tomatoes chopped
1 green chilli ( omit if making for kids)
1/4 tsp tumeric
oil ( I used corn oil)
1. Boil your potatoes in a large pan of salted water till cooked through. Mash roughly and set aside
2. Heat a wok or large frying pan with a few tablespoons of oil add mustard seeds, once the seeds starts to pop , add onions and curry leaves and soften the onion.
3. Add the tomatoes and cook to soften the tomatoes a little, about 1-2 minutes. Add the mashed potatoes and tumeric ( and chilli if using), stir well to combine with all the ingrediants and add salt to taste. If it looks too dry, add 2 tbsp milk .
Serve with a some spicy sausages or curried sausages . Personally I wont mind it even in a sandwich or even on its own.
Have a nice week end!
