Potato Masala / Aloo Masala / Urulaikilangu Masala - Using Coconut Milk


Potato masala is always the best pair for sambar rice, rasam rice or curd rice and it is such a comfort food that you can serve it with dosa, chapatis, rotis, pooris and any Indian bread variety. With the leftover masala you can make bondas, stuffed rotis, or any fritters. This potato masala is so delicious and flavorful and no one will believe that you have added just cinnamon sticks for flavor. So simple to make but tastes so yum, I have prepared it mildly spicy, but you can alter the spiciness according to your wish. Coriander leaves and curry leaves gives such an awesome flavor and aroma and adding coconut milk to preparation makes it even more flavorful and yummy. This is another of my best recipes and my brother today requested me to make this masala and I was really very glad to make this for him. Lets now see how to make this spicy and lip-smacking potato masala.
