Mashed Potatoes With Spices

I came across this recipe in  a low fat Indian recipe book. I tweaked it a bit by adding some curry leaves and mustard seeds . Served it up with a spice infused meatloaf ( will post recipe soon once I am happy with the result of my meatloaf).  The boys loved it so for me thats all that I need to make it again. 
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!
