Potato Mash Curry / Aloo Tadka / Bangaladumpa Koora, is the most  fastest and easiest version of potato curry I can think of at any moment. I am aware of many other Potato Curry / Aloo recipes, which I cook for my potato loving family. I make this atleast once or twice a week, as a side for rice, naan, poori, chapati, dosa, sandwich stuffing. 

The word Aloo Tadka means Tempered Potatoes in Hindi, the national language of India.While Bangaladumpa Koora means Potato Curry in Telugu, a South Indian Regional Language.

At times, we even eat it just as it is. Even with fewest ingredients used, this curry tastes heavenly. Just go for it and you will surely like it.

Before starting to cook, don’t forget to see the Tips  mentioned at the end.

  • Now, add this coarsely ground mix and salt into the pan of potatoes.
  • Add the rest of 1 tablespoon of oil, mix up every thing thoroughly.
  • Cover the pan with lid for couple of minutes. Switch off and serve! Done!


  • I use my pressure cooker to boil the potatoes upto 6-7 whistles.
  • I always boil the potatoes along with peel, so that its easy to remove the skinny peel after boiling.
  • If you are short of above mentioned ingredients for tempering, try to add as much as you have.
  • Adjust the salt & spice as per your taste.
  • Don’t burn the tempering, which is most important.
  • You can mash the potatoes before adding to the tempering or else chop them to the required size and add them.
  • I generally use my mortar-pestle to grind the green chillies & coriander. Just that it gives me pleasure that I am using the traditional method of grinding. Moreover, it adds a hidden aroma too. 🙂


  • This curry tastes extremely good as a side with rice, poori, naan, chapati, paratha, dosa, any pulao too.
  • You can have it as patties for burgers, in sandwiches, for cutlets too.
  • Spicy and full of flavours it attained from tempering and ground mix.
