puri and bhajji

There is nothing special about puris. But this pataL(means watery) bhajji is a speciality of Honavar, Kumta and nearby places. It has the simplest of ingredients, highlighting the basic taste of potatoes and also gets ready in a jiffy :)



  • Potatoes - 2 medium sized potatoes
  • Grated coconut - 2 tablespoons
  • Green chillies - 4
  • A sprig of curry leaves
  • Mustard - 1 teaspoon
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for tempering


  • Boil and peel the potatoes and set aside.
  • Mash the potatoes and add the grated coconut, salt and water.
  • In a kadai, heat some oil and add the mustard. Once the mustard stops sputtering, add the green chillies and curry leaves and finally add the potato/coconut mixture.
  • Boil well and simmer for a few minutes.

Preparation time: 20 minutes
