cartofi masala

Masala de cartofi

½ kg cartofi
½ kg mazăre congelată
2 ardei grași
4 cepe
4 roșii
2 cm ghimbir ras (1 linguriță ghimbir pudră)
2 lingurițe curcuma
2 linguriță semințe de muștar
1 linguriță garam masala
ardei iute/boia iute, după gust
1 lingură bulion de roșii
2 linguri ulei

Cartofii, tăiați bucăți potrivite, se fierb, în apă la care s-a adăugat 1 linguriță de curcuma. Se scurg de apă.
Se încinge uleiul într-o cratiță și se adaugă semințele de muștar. Se prăjesc  2-3 minute până când încep să “sară”. Se adaugă ceapa tăiată și ardeiul gras tăiat bucățele. Se călește câteva minute (2-3) apoi se adaugă restul ingredientelor și restul de curcuma. Se fierbe câteva minute, dacă este nevoie se adăugă puțină apă.

Se adaugă cartofii și mazărea, adăugând apă cât să nu se prindă de cratiță. Cănd acestea s-au pătruns se potrivește de sare.

Se servește alături de orez basmati/biryani și/sau pâinici naan.cartofi masala

    Hi, this looks lovely and I’d love to try it – but I’m wondering how many it serves? The portions look large (4 onions for example) – I only cook for two people, so I’m guessing I would need to reduce the volume of ingredients, but I’m not sure by how much. Thanks.

      Hallo Clare, thanks! The quantities are for 3-4 servings, for twoo persons just halve the ingredients. Best regards, Fleur

    Thanks for replying so quickly, Fleur! I’m in the middle of making it now, I went with two onions and three tomatoes, but with the rest of the ingredients about the same amounts you’ve said. We’re feeling greedy, so we’ll probably manage it all anyway, ha ha 🙂 I can’t wait to try all your recipes!
