Chilli Potato

This is a very spicy potato which goes well with rotis. It is easy to make and becomes a family favourite quite quickly. It's all about sauteing and stirring.

 You need
  • Potato - 1 big
  • Capsicum - 1 small
  • Onion - 1 medium
  • Garlic cloves - 2 big
  • Green chilli - 1
  • Dry red chilli - 5
  • Tomato sauce - 1 tbsp
  • Soya sauce - 1 tsp
  • Corn flour - 1 tbsp
  • Water - 1 cup
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for sauting

  • Dice potato, capsicum, onion. Chop garlic. Slit green chilli length wise
  • In a small vessel of boiling water put dry red chillies and cook for 2 minutes
  • Allow to cool, drain and grind it without water to get red chilli paste.
  • Cook potato until partially done. Keep aside
  • Heat oil in a pan.
  • Add garlic. Saute until raw aroma leaves.
  • Add green chilli and diced onion. Saute until pink.
  • Add dry red chilli paste. Saute.
  • Add tomato sauce and soya sauce. Stir and mix well. 
  • Add salt to taste (remember you've added soya sauce)
  • Add 3/4 cup water. Put the partially cooked potato and diced capsicum into it. 
  • Cover and cook until done. 
  • Mix corn flour in a little cold water to make a paste. Add to the above curry to get a saucy gravy. 
  • Let it simmer for 10 secs.
  • Serve hot.
