Batata Ni Sukhi Bhaji (Indian Style Stir Fried Boiled Potatoes)

Batata Ni Sukhi Bhaji


It is a popular gujarati cuisine recipe and is mostly made during the community lunch or dinner gathering ( nath nu jamanwar) or during marriages. It goes well with puri or thepla or dhebras. It is an easy-to-make recipe and hence people also make it for their journeys.

As the name says it is made from potatoes (batata). The potatoes are boiled and cut in pieces and then are tempered with mustard seeds, asafoetida and curry leaves. The curry leaves enhances the flavor of the dish. To give it extra richness some cashews and raisins are added.

The dish has the nice bright yellow colour. I really love the colour.It is made with minimum of masalas and yet is full of flavors. Many people eat it when they are fasting.

I have mashed some of the potatoes. I have added first mashed potatoes and then the sugar, salt and lemon juice. This will blend the seasoning well . Then when we add the cube potatoes and toss them in this mixture it will coat well and the seasoning will be nicely balanced on the potatoes and they will not taste bland.

  1. Thanks for the visual recipe! Loved it with a little bit more lemon. As much as I wished I had curry leaves, a mix of corriander and spring onion did a great job as replacement 🙂 Cheers!
