Aloo Panch Phoran

  1. Red Chili Powder
  2. Cumin seeds
  3. Mustard seeds
  4. Cumin seeds and Corinader seeds Powder
  5. Turmeric Powder
  6. Garam Masala powder
  7. Asafoetida ( hing )

You will need:-
  • 500 g potatoes peeled and cubed
  • 150 g plum tomatoes crushed ( you can use fresh too )
  • 2 tsp green chillies and ginger finely chopped
  • 7-8 curry leaves
  • 2-3 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp Panch Phoran 
  • Salt to taste
  • Pinch of asafoetida ( hing )
  • 1 tsp sugar ( optional )
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp tumeric powder
  • 2 tsp cumin and coriander powder
  • 1/4 tsp garam masala
  • Handful of fresh chopped coriander leaves
  • 11/2 cup water
Heat oil in a heavybottom pan or kadai.
Add panch phoran and hing,when they begin to crackle add curry leaves and chopped chillies and ginger.
Fry them just for few seconds, add crushed tomatoes. Lower the heat.
Now add all the masala powder with salt and sugar and cook the tomatoes till oil rises to the top.
Add potato pieces and stir well. Add 1 cup water, mix well and cover the lid and cook poatoes on a moderate heat for 15-20 minutes (stir occasionally ) or till well cooked and gravy thickens. If you think there is not much water left and potatoes are not fully cooked, add little more water. I made mine in pressure cooker with 2 whistles. Garnish with fresh chopped coriander leaves and serve hot with rice, round and soft gujarati rotlis or Naan bread.
