Cooking Method:

  • Pressure cook potatoes (simmer for 8 min after bringing to high pressure).
  • Slice onion into strips & slit green chillies.
  • Heat a pan with oil, add curry leaves, onion strips & slit green chillies.
  • Saute in medium flame until onions become translucent.
  • Add turmeric and saute for 5 sec.
  • Add mashed potatoes & salt and mix them evenly.
  • Add water to get required consistency & cook for a min.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves & serve with roti or poori.


  1. For stuffing potato masala inside dosa, paratha, or sandwich : We can use red chilli powder instead of green chillies, coriander leaves instead of curry leaves, chopped onion instead of sliced onion, so that we won’t feel the large hot chunks inside our mouth.
  2. As a side dish for rice varieties : We can add ginger along with green chillies & garnish with mustard tempering.

  1. I usually add potato chunks, so that I can use them as a curry. But This is a different take on potato Masala. I guess I should try mashed potato as well.
