Aloo curry, a flavorful Indian dish made with potatoes, offers several health benefits. Potatoes provide vitamin C for immune function, potassium for blood pressure regulation, and fiber for digestion and weight management. Prepared with wholesome ingredients, it's a nutritious addition to a balanced diet, though moderation is advised with fried or heavily seasoned versions.


  • 4 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 tablespoons oil or ghee
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 2 green chilies, slit lengthwise 
  • 1 tablespoon ginger-garlic paste
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 tablespoon coriander powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder 
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh coriander leaves for garnish


Prepare Potatoes:

  •  Peel the potatoes and cut them into cubes. Rinse them under cold water and set aside.

Heat Oil:

Sauté Cumin Seeds:

  • Add cumin seeds to the heated oil and let them splutter.

Sauté Onions:

  • Add finely chopped onions to the cookware and sauté until they turn golden brown.

Add Aromatics:

  • Add slit green chilies and ginger-garlic paste to the cookware. Sauté for a minute until the raw aroma of ginger-garlic disappears.

Add Spices:

  • Stir in turmeric powder, coriander powder, red chili powder, and garam masala. Sauté for a minute to toast the spices.

Add Tomatoes:

  • Add finely chopped tomatoes to the cookware and cook until they turn soft and mushy, stirring occasionally.

Cook Potatoes:

  • Once the tomatoes are cooked, add the cubed potatoes to the cookware. Mix well to coat the potatoes with the spices.

Garnish and Serve:
