Spicy Potato Filling

Servings :

An alternative veggie filling for those who prefer to skip a meaty filling in their breads/buns. Also works beautifully in Aloo-Parathas.


  • 1/2 kg potatoes
  • 1 tbsp. butter or oil
  • 1/4 tsp. rai/mustard seeds
  • 2-3 curry leaves/limro (optional)
  • 2 green chillies, chopped
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. chilli powder
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 onion, chopped finely
  • some chilli flakes
  • 1/4 tsp. turmeric
  • pinch of cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic paste
  • 3 tbsp. chopped coriander


Boil the potatoes, peel and mash whilst still warm (use good white potatoes for this to avoid stickiness)

Heat a pan and add the butter, once heated add the rai/mustard seeds and chopped limro/curry leaves. Add the garlic paste and stir together.

Then add the onions and fry until soft…don’t brown them. Now add the mashed potatoes, add salt, chili powder, turmeric powder, cumin powder and chilli flakes. Stir together then add the lemon juice, chopped coriander and chopped green chili. Taste and adjust salt and chilli, switch off and use in parathas or in buns, can be used in sandwiches too.
