Simple Potato Tomato Curry / Aloo Tomato Gravy - Side Dish for Poori, Chapati & Battura

Days are running so fast, i couldn't wait to take my love to this world. Just couple of weeks left and i am feeling very very excited as well as thrilled. I am working on as many draft post to keep on hand, so i could keep this blog updated as regularly as i can. So no worries my dear viewers, i will stay in touch with you all even at the peek moment.

The one curry which we go for whenever we make battura is this one. This elegant curry pairs beautifully with poori, roti or battura. My personal favorite is having this with batturas. The one cool thing about this is, if you have cooked potatoes in your fridge, You could whip this in no time. I hope you will love this and let me know what you think.

  1. I and my hubby we both love this curry.. Super with rice or poori...

  2. Delicious and mouthwatering to look at curry. Could go along with breakfast, lunch and dinner.

  3. Nice recipe... congrats for ur lil one... I am a new blogger... f8llowing ur site these days....

  4. We've just come back home after visiting our family in another town. We cleared the fridge before going away, so on return there was nothing in it except onions, potatoes and tomatoes (canned). The result? This curry.

    It's probably not going to be my favourite curry ever, but it's invaluable for those empty-fridge-no-time-to-shop days. I made batturas to go with it.

  5. All your recipes with their illustration transforms even a bad cook to a better one. Love it. It has become my cooking guide at all times. Go ahead with the same.:)

  6. Sorry but this looks too watery. It's quite unnecessary to add this much water, the juice from the tomato will give the perfect consistency. It looks good otherwise!

  7. Thank you Arti.was looking for something like this.
