Cucumber – Potato Stir Fry


Cucumber – Potato Stir Fry

This is a delicious combination of potato and cucumber which is very easy to prepare with less work. For this curry, I used English Cucumbers instead of Lemon Cucumbers. So we can use both types of cucumbers, whichever are available at the time. This goes well with rice as well as chapathis.


Ingredients: (Look at the picture on the side)
  • 2 Potatoes
  • 2 Cucumbers
  • ½ cup finely chopped Onions
  • ½ tsp Red Chili Powder
  • A pinch of Turmeric Powder
  • Salt
For Seasoning/Tempering:
  • 1 tsp Oil
  • ½ tsp Mustard Seeds
  • ¼ tsp Cumin Seeds
  • ½ tsp Bengal Gram (పచ్చి సెనగపప్పు, Chana Dal)
  • ½ tsp Black Gram (మినప్పప్పు, Urad Dal)
  • Few Curry Leaves
  • 1 or 2 dry red Chilies (optional)
Cucumbers, Potatoes, Onions

Cucumber – Potato Stir Fry

Preparation:
  1. Wash and peel cucumbers and potatoes. Then chop them into small pieces. Keep aside.
  2. Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When they pop, add cumin seeds + Bengal Gram + Black Gram + curry leaves + red chilies and sauté well.
  3. Then add onions and fry till the onions become translucent. Then add chopped cucumber + potato and stir well.
  4. Add chili powder + turmeric + salt to the curry and mix well. Keep the pan covered on medium low flame for some time.
  5. Keep stirring now and then. When the vegetables cook well and become soft, turn off the flame.
  6. Transfer the curry to a serving bowl and enjoy with steaming hot rice or chapathis.
  7. Yummy!
