Aachari Alu - Potatoes in Mango Chutney Sauce

Recipe from What's For Lunch, Honey? 


8 large potatoes, peeled and cut in quarters
3 tomatoes, chopped
2 onions, finely chopped
2 tablespoons cooking oil
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
2 tablespoons mango chutney sauce, without mango pieces.
Handful of fresh coriander leaves, chopped
Salt and pepper


Heat the oil in a large non-stick pan. Sauté the onions on high heat until golden, then add the tomatoes. Under regular stirring cook the mixture until it turns into a thick paste.

Add some salt and the turmeric powder. After a minute throw in the potatoes and approx. 50 milliliters water. Covered and on low heat, simmer the potatoes until soft and the water has evaporated - this takes about 15-20 minutes.  

Stir in the mango pickle sauce and a sprinkling of pepper. Garnish with the chopped coriander leaves and serve with warm rotis or pita bread.
