Potato mosaru bajji / Potato mixed with yogurt

Hello :) Today the 19th recipe of my Wish List gets fulfilled :) and I'm happy about that :)
It is an extremely simple side dish made of potatoes and yogurt. We have it with rice at home. Simple, yet it is appetizing :) I prepared it for lunch today :) Usually I don't make it spicy but today I added more green chillies to it and it tasted better than ever :)

Here goes the recipe :)

Ingredients: (For three people)

3 Medium sized potatoes

2 large green chillies

2 cups of yogurt

Salt to taste


Vegetable oil (For seasoning and shallow frying)

½ tsp Mustard seeds

½ tsp Cumin seeds

½ tsp Urad dal

1 Red chilly

Few curry leaves


Chop the green chillies very thin as shown below.

Boil the potatoes ina pressure cooker and peel the skin off. Add it to the chillies as shown below.

Add salt to taste. Now mash the mixture with hands till you get the form as shown below.

Add the yogurt to this mixture and stir well. :)

Now, prepare the seasoning. Heat 2 tsp of oil. Add urad dal, mustard seeds, cumin seeds, red chilly and curry leaves. Allow the mustard seeds to pop. As it stops popping pour the seasoning over the potato and yogurt mixture.

It was indeed fun to prepare this recipe. :) Do try this out :)

Happy cooking :)
