Sambar powder - 1 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
Urad dal - 1/4 tsp
Hing powder - 1/4 tsp
Oil - 3 or 4 tsp
Salt - as required


Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds. Once it splutters, add curry leaves, hing powder and green chillies. Fry for few seconds.

Add urad dal and fry for 15 seconds. Add onions and fry until it becomes transparent.

Add tomatoes and fry for a minute. Add potatoes, turmeric powder and fry for a minute.

Add sambar powder with enough water and mix well.

Allow it to boil until the potatoes are cooked like mashy consistency. Smash potatoes slightly using smasher or with spatula itself.

Add little water to the smashed potato and allow it to boil for few minutes.
Garnish curry with chopped cilantro.
Potato curry for puri should be neither too thick nor too watery. Serve it with hot puris.
