Simple N Easy Potato Masala

This is a spicy curry with potatoes and onions which can be prepared at short notice and tastes good when served with rice and daal. My aunt(Father's sister) found this popular dish in Andhra. They add Turmeric powder and some other ingredients but we make it simple, with only 6 ingredients. This used to be my favourite side dish when I was a bachelor, cooking own food in Bangalore.
This goes well with chapathis and pooris also. You may add chilli powder according to your taste but this being a dry curry needs little more oil to taste better.
1. Potatoes - 4 medium
2. Onions - 2 medium
3. Urad daal - 1 Tsp
4. Red Chilli powder - 2-3 Tsp
5. Salt - To taste
6. Coconut oil - 3-4 Tsp

Wash boil and peel the potatoes.
Cut into small cubes.
Chop the onions finely.
Heat oil in a kadai.
Add urad daal. Allow that to get golden brown.
Add half of the chopped onions and brown them.
Now add the remaining chopped onions and saute till they become soft and golden.
Add chilli powder, cubed boiled potatoes and salt to taste.
Mix well to coat the potatoes with the masala and salt.
If the curry gets too dry, you may sprinkle little water.
Allow the masala to infiltrate the potatoes.
Switch off the heat, cover and keep for 5 mins.
Serve garnished with chopped coriander leaves and lemon wedge. We prefer it as it is.
Goes well with Rice and Daalithoi.
