Aloogadde(Potato) Sasive

Ingredients:
1 large Potato / Aloogadde / Aloo
3/4 - 1 cup grated Coconut
1 Green Chilly
Small piece of Ginger
3/4 tsp Mustard seeds (1/4 for Masala + 1/2 for Seasoning)
1/2 - 3/4 cup Buttermilk / Yogurt
Pinch of Turmeric powder
Salt to taste
1 - 2 broken Red Chillies
2 - 3 Curry leaves
1 tsp Oil

Recipe:
Cook the potato in a pressure cooker by adding sufficient amount of water(2-3 whistles). Once the pressure goes off, remove the outer skin of potato, chop it into medium sized pieces as shown in the picture below. Add pinch of turmeric powder, salt and mix them well.

Put grated coconut, green chilly and 1/4 tsp mustard seeds in a mixer. Add enough water and grind it to smooth paste. (If it is frozen coconut, add hot water while grinding.) Add ginger and grind them together for about 2 mins.

Add ground coconut, buttermilk to the vessel containing cooked potato and mix well. (If it is yogurt/curd, put it in a mixer for few seconds before adding it to sasive.) Add water and salt if required.
Put oil, 1/2 tsp mustard seeds, broken red chillies in a pan and heat. Once it starts spluttering, add curry leaves and keep it for few seconds and then add it to sasive. Mix well before serving. It goes well along with rice.
