  • 3 medium potatoes washed, peeled and cut into small cubes
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 1 tablespoon garlic paste
  • 1 teaspoon red chili powder amount can be adjusted for heat
  • 1/2 tablespoon cumin powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder optional
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon nigella seeds optional
  • 1 bunch coriander finely chopped.


  • Heat oil in a medium sized pot on medium heat, and add the garlic paste. Cook for 30 seconds and then add the potatoes. Cook for about 2-3 minutes.
  • Now add the spices (red chili powder, cumin powder and turmeric powder) and cook for 10-15 seconds and then add the water. The potatoes should be almost completely submerged in the water.
  • Cook on low heat until the potatoes have cooked through and the water has evaporated. The curry will be thick in consistency.
  • If the potatoes aren't cooked through then add additional water (about 1/2 cup water) and cook until the potatoes are cooked through.
  • Add in the nigella seeds and cook for 30 seconds.
  • Add in the coriander and cook for 30 seconds.
  • Serve with rice or naan.
