This curry takes me to my childhood days. Amma would make it with madras ulli sambar….heavenly combination.


Potato                          5 (big)
Grated Coconut           1 cup
Green chillies               5 or 6
Cumin seeds                1 tea spoon
Curry leaves a few
Oil                                  2 teaspoons
Mustard seeds             1 teaspoon
Urid dal (mash dal)      1 teaspoon
Salt to taste


Pressure cook the potatoes. Turn off the cooker after 5 to 6 whistles.

Once the cooker is ready to be opened, take the potatoes out and cool them.

Peel the skin of the potatoes, mash them well.and set aside.

Take a pan, add oil and mustard seeds. Once it crackles add urid dal and after one second add curry leaves and mashed potatoes.

Add salt to the potatoes and mix and let it
cook on a low flame for 5 mins.

Take a mixer pot, add grated coconut, cumin seeds and green chillies. Grind without adding any water.

Add the ground coconut mixture to the potatoes. Mix well and check salt.

Can be garnished with coriander leaves. This curry tastes great with rice and sambar.
