Batatyacha Rassa – Potato Gravy

This is going to be my first entry for RCI: Maharashtrian Cuisine

Here is the recipe for Batatyacha Rassa

Serves 4
Preparation time – 10 mins
Cooking time – 10 mins
Ingredients

For Rassa
Potatoes – 4 medium
Tomatoes – 2
Green chilies – 4
Turmeric powder – a pinch
Water – as required

For Seasoning
Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds – 1/2 tsp
Asafetida – a pinch
salt to taste.
Garam masala – 1 tsp
Oil – 1 tbsp
Coriander leaves
Method to prepare

Wash and boil the potatoes in a cooker. Peal off the skin.

Chop the tomatoes to fine pieces. Slit the green chilies in the middle. Keep aside. Finely chop the coriander leaves.

Heat oil in a pan. Once the oil is hot, add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, asafetida and turmeric powder. Once it starts spluttering, add chopped tomatoes. Sim for 5 mins.

Add mashed potatoes and required quantity of water. Mix it well and bring it to a boil.

Since I didn’t have Black maharashtrian masala, I added the regular garam masala that I had, then salt and half of the coriander leaves.

The dish is ready within 5 mins.

Garnish with the remaining coriander leaves.


I served this with hot puris and it was really good. My daughter and athamma wanted this to be included in our regulars. This is a variation for us, as we never make potato gravy without onions.

Thanks to Lakshmi of Veggie Cuisine for starting such a great event and Nupur for hosting this month’s event.
