An easy one-pot potato curry packed with so many flavours. Soft, tender potatoes slathered in a spicy, onion masala. If you want a delicious dinner on the table in no more than an hour, then this recipe is perfect.

Aloo masala curry is an easy vegetable curry recipe made with potatoes, onions, and a blend of spices. Masala aloo curry is a veg curry recipe as well as a vegan curry that is a fantastic meal for any time of day.

Also known as aloo ki sabzi in Hindi, aloo ki sabzi is a delicious spicy potato curry recipe that is served alongside dosa or as a side with boiled basmati rice. This aloo recipe is an easy potato recipe that is sure to impress anyone and be one to add to your cookbook.

Potatoes, also known as aloo in Hindi, are one of my favourite vegetables. Alongside bell peppers, of course. I use potatoes in a lot of my recipes such as my aloo pakora recipe or my chicken biryani recipe. They really are the start of the show in this curry though.

This curry is perfect for everyone from vegetarians to vegans. If you’re looking for something to serve at your next dinner party, then this curry recipe is definitely what you have been looking for.

The amount of water that you add is entirely up to you. If you want the curry to have more of a watery consistency, then you can add more. I prefer my potato curry to be dry as I usually like to serve it with chapatti or naan.

This might seem obvious, but the smaller you cube the potatoes, the faster they’ll cook. Just keep this in mind as you want to watch the cooking time so that the potatoes don’t turn to mush. The best thing about this recipe is that it is quite forgiving regardless of how you tweak it, so that’s why it is perfect for beginners!

You can adjust the recipe and add as much or as little spice as you prefer. You could even add some more vegetables if you like. Sometimes I like to add some frozen peas. I know not everyone is a fan of peas, so I didn’t add them to this recipe.

I have made this recipe in the past and it was a hit, a little too spicy for a couple of people but I loved it
