Potato Carrot Masala / Aloo Carrot Subji(Subzi) /Filling of Masala Dosa

          This hearty indian mashed masala uses ingredients commonly on-hand in our kitchen & comes out so rich and delicious.... Potato and carrot together just works out wonder..Simple yet healthy & wonderfully yummyy & colorful...Kids would love this combo..

         This can be used as the filling for Masala Dosa (the reason why my husband loves this most),  accompaniment for Puris & also served with Ghee roast, normal dosas, idli, chappathi...Also try pouring some rasam (Tamarind Curry) on top of this, & just have a lick...Try this once you'll keep asking more...Can be had as breakfast, evening snack, or as dinner....if you feel so try it as lunch too..So lets see this easy recipe..


1.Potato -3 or 4 (large)
2.Carrot- 1 or 2 (medium)
3.Green chilly-4 (slit into halves)
4.Onion-3 (large..sliced)
5.Capsicum-half or 1 (optional)
6.Mustard seeds-1 tsp or 1 1/2 tsp
7.Curry leaves-1 or 2 springs
9.Oil-2 tbsp
10.Pepper-1/2 tspn
11.Turmeric powder-1/2 tbsp
12.Cumin jeera powder (cheriya jeeraka podi)-1/2 tbsp

Preparation (of vegetables)

~Clean the vegetables properly.
~Cook potatoes, carrot, capsicum & green chillies along with enough water & little salt in a pressure cooker (4 whistles)
~Cook potato & carrot along with its skin.(can cut potatoes into 2 halves for better results)

~Once cooked, wait till the steam releases & open the lid & remove the veggies to another bowl & pour normal/cold water on it.
~Keep the stock(water of cooked veggies) aside for further use.
~Peel the potatoes & carrot & smash them..Capsicum can be cut into pieces..

Preparation (of masala)

~Heat oil in a kadai & add mustard seeds.

~Once it splutters, add the sliced onions & roast little...(Don't saute them too much..the crunchiness of the onions should be maintained)

~Add pepper, cumin powder & turmeric powder & mix well.

~Now add the smashed vegetables, curry leaves along with little of the stock & mix well.

~Keep adding the stock until you can mix well with your spoon.
~Check its taste & add more salt or pepper accordingly.
~Now its somewhat like a paste.
~Remove this delicious masala from flame.

~If its a masala dosa in your mind...Prepare a thin dosa...pour little ghee on top of it...(do not flip the dosa)

~Place the prepared delicious masala on top of it & just give it a roll...Masala Dosa is ready !!

~Have it with your favorite chutney or Sambar or both... I prefer my special  Tomato Onion Chutney with this..

Prepare as many as you want for your loved ones...(Till the masala gets over) Njoyy !!
