Spicy Garlicky Potatoes / Lasaniya Bataka

As I told you in my old post that Kathiyavadi food is very flavorful and spicy and this is the must shak or subji / curry in thali. If you can handle spicy and garlic in your food, this is your dish, the more spicy and garlicky , its that yummy but again add the way you and your family can handle. One day I got message from my husband that he is not having diner tonight and I thought what to make for myself and then potatoes was the first thing in my mind. I posted Kathiyawadi style Adad ni dal before so along with that this is the perfect pair and in cold wintery days this is perfect pair with Millet bread called Bajri na Rotla. If you are making spicy , have any milk products with you , like  buttermilk  , Lassi or even plain white milk to go with this so if its too spicy for you , you can cool with that.

Ingredients :

2 big potatoes cut it in big chunks / you can use baby potatoes too
1/2 onion finely chopped
3 dry Kashmiri chilies
10 cloves of garlic
1 piece of ginger
1 tsp. cumin - coriander powder
1 tsp. turmeric powder
1 tomato chopped or 2 tbsp. puree
1/2 tsp. red chili powder / optional
1/2 tsp. garam masala
salt to taste
2 tsp. oil
1 tsp. cumin seeds


Keep the Kashmiri chilies in water for 5-10 minutes so it soften.
After that make a paste of ginger, garlic, tomato, cumin coriander powder, turmeric powder, Kashmiri chilies. Paste should be smooth.
Heat a pan, add oil in it.
Add jeera and when it changes it color, add onion in it.
Cook till its brown..
Add paste and cook for 5 minutes.
Now add potatoes and add enough water to cook potatoes.
Cook till potatoes are nice and soft.
Depend upon you preference, you can have more gravy or dry.
I like gravy to coat the vegetable so I dry it. I added few soya chunks too in it. I just love this combo so.

Serve it with puri, rotla or paratha.
Inspired from here.
