Potato in curd gravy

The art of Indian cooking, revolves around, how the same ingredient used in various dishes can add a different touch and unique taste to each of them individually. Once while watching a tele cooking-show, I took a note of this recipe ‘potato in curd gravy’. Though while cooking many non-vegetarian curries, I have used curd as of the ingredients in it, curd as ‘in gravy’ sounded interesting. This widened my interest in exploring other cuisines too, where curd is used as a main ingredient. Interestingly the famous dish ‘Khadi’, in which curd is used for the gravy, is a part of many regional cuisines.

The spicy potato in curd gravy is a perfect accompaniment with steaming white rice; if not much of a rice eater you can savour it with rotis too!

This is how I prepare the recipe ‘potato in curd gravy’…


  • 3 medium potatoes boiled and peeled
  • 1 cup curd/yoghurt whipped
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder

  • 2 green chillies slit
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds

  • Cut potatoes into big pieces. Mash three to four pieces separately and keep both aside.
  • Mix all dry masalas – red chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder and garam masala in ¼ cup water.
