Potato curry- No onion, no garlic recipe

This is a very simple dish to make. I usually make it on days on which we are fasting. Sometimes its yummily paired with Bedmi poori (will post the recipe soon).


  • Potatoes- 3, boiled, peeled and diced
  • Tomatoes- 2
  • Ginger- 1' piece
  • Green chillies- 1-2 (depending on the heat you want in the curry)
  • Ghee/ Clarified butter- 1tsp
  • Jeera/Cumin seeds- 1/2 tsp
  • Heeng/asafoetida- a pinch


  • Dhaniya power/coriander seeds powder- 1 and 1/2 tsp
  • Red chilli powder- 1/4 tsp
  • Haldi/ Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
  • Garam masala- 1/4 tsp
  • Salt- 1 tsp ( you can increase or decrease as per your taste)


  1. Grind tomatoes, ginger and green chilies together.
  2. Heat Ghee in a Kadhai.
  3. Add Heeng and jeera.
  4. When the Jeera sizzles and brown, add the ground  tomato paste.
  5. Add all the spices and mix well. Lower the flame a little and let it cook till the oil leave sides.
  6. Add the potatoes and turn them in order to coat them with the cooked gravy. Add some water. Here you can decide the amount as per your need to have a thick or thin gravy.
  7. You can mash a few pieces of potatoes here to give texture to the gravy.
  8. Taste and adjust for salt.

Serve hot!
