"This is one of my favourite kooras. I think we call it upma koora because the tadka (spice mixture) ingredients are what we use for upma. I think you will love it too."

  1. Place the potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two. Remove and discard the skins; roughly mash the potatoes into coarse chunks. Set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet. Fry the urad dal, chana dal, mustard seed, and dried red chile peppers in the oil until the seeds begin to splutter. Sprinkle the asafoetida powder over the mixture. Stir the onion, green chile peppers, and curry leaves into the mixture and cook until the onion is lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Add the potatoes, turmeric, red pepper, ginger and salt; cook and stir until the potatoes are thoroughly reheated, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add the lime juice and cilantro to serve.

We loved these potatoes and I guess this dish will be a staple in my family. I didn't use chana dal and used only 2 green chilies. Delicious and easy to make, thanks.

We loved this recipe, although felt like we were missing a step? Are you supposed to boil the chana dal and urad dal before frying...? They turned out still raw, like I kind of expected. The fla...
