Potato Gojju

Potato gojju is a very frequently made side dish at my home. It goes well with dal chawal or rasam. It is a very flexible dish to make and can be made with which ever ingredients are available on hand. It can be made with just potatoes or a tomato can add a tangy-sour flavor to the gojju.

2 boiled potatoes
1 medium tomato
1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
1 green chili or as per taste
4-5 curry leaves
1 teaspoon coconut oil or any other oil
salt for taste

Wash and roughly chop the tomato. Cook the tomato well with very little water in the microwave or stove top. Chop green chilies. Mash the tomato, green chilies, salt and potato well with your fingers. Add water as per desired consistency. Season the gojju with mustard seeds and curry leaves.
