Method 1: Traditional Stovetop Cooking For those who enjoy the traditional cooking experience, the stovetop method offers a hands-on approach to making Bhandara potato curry. Here's how to do it:


  • 4 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1-inch piece of ginger, grated

  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh cilantro for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil


  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the cumin seeds and allow them to sizzle for a few seconds.
  2. Add the chopped onions and sauté until they turn golden brown.
  3. Stir in the minced garlic, grated ginger, and chopped green chilies. Cook for another minute until fragrant.
  4. Add the diced tomatoes to the pan and cook until they soften and form a thick gravy.
  5. Now, add the cubed potatoes to the pan along with turmeric powder, coriander powder, red chili powder, and salt. Mix well to coat the potatoes evenly with the spices.
  6. Pour in enough water to cover the potatoes and bring the mixture to a simmer.
  7. Cover the pan and let the curry cook for about 15-20 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender and cooked through.
  8. Once done, garnish the Bhandara potato curry with fresh cilantro and serve hot with steamed rice or Indian bread of your choice.

Method 2: Quick and Easy Instant Pot Version For those pressed for time, the Instant Pot method offers a convenient way to whip up Bhandara potato curry without compromising on flavor. Here's how:


  • Same as above, plus:
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1/2 cup water


  1. Start by sautéing the cumin seeds, onions, garlic, ginger, and green chilies in the Instant Pot using the sauté function.
  2. Add the diced tomatoes and spices, followed by the cubed potatoes. Mix well to combine.
  3. Pour in the water and give everything a good stir, ensuring nothing is stuck to the bottom of the pot.
  4. Close the lid of the Instant Pot and set it to manual high pressure for 5 minutes.
  5. Once the cooking cycle is complete, allow for a natural pressure release for 5 minutes, then carefully perform a quick release.
  6. Open the lid and give the curry a final stir, adjusting the seasoning if necessary.
  7. Sprinkle with garam masala and garnish with fresh cilantro before serving.
