Halwai Style Rasedar Aloo-Poori | Tari Wali Aloo Ki Sabzi I Instant Pot Potato Curry for Puri

How to Make Halwai Style Rasedar Aloo ki Sabji(Potato Curry)

Hello Foodies,

         This is a spicy, aromatic, and tangy potato curry. This vegan and vegetarian potato recipe is an instant and easy to make for any special occasion. It tastes best with poori but also goes well with chapati, paratha, aloo paratha, or even with rice. Rasedar Aloo Curry - Here, ‘Rasedar‘ means having a slightly thin consistency in the curry, and ‘aloo’ means potatoes.

Aloo puri is an Indian breakfast, lunch, or brunch menu, in which potato curry is served with puffed-up deep-fried poori, Indian bread. Every Indian home has its version to make this potato curry. We make this curry during Indian festivals, especially for Diwali. I love to serve this potato curry with poori, steamed rice, shevya kheer/rice kheer and along with some pickle, this makes a perfect and completely satisfying meal for a family. Also, this makes a perfect meal during cold days, rainy season. You can make this curry without onion too. It is a simple curry recipe and hardly takes 30 minutes of your time from start to finish.

The curry is versatile and you can vary the tang and heat content as per your taste. Tomatoes make this gravy tangy. The spices merge very well with the tomatoes and make it flavorful. You can also add peas to the curry. You can also make this potato gravy for fasting.

Boiling Potatoes on the Stovetop:

  • Boil the potatoes till they are very well cooked and can be easily crumbled.
  • Peel and crumble the potatoes. Keep aside.

My Take:

  • You can use ghee instead of oil.
  • You can skip onion and garlic to make no onion - no garlic recipe.
  • You can serve this curry with other Indian Bread such as Chapati/Phulka, Roti/Naan, Aloo Paratha, or Laccha Paratha.
  • To thicken the curry: You can also mash a few potatoes with the back of a spoon. You can keep the consistency you want or for a slightly thicker consistency, simmer for some more minutes.
