This masala is an ancient recipe for vegetable curries from the Gavli community of Goa. Literally ‘milkmen’ or ‘herdsmen’, Gavlis are traditionally pastoral and vegetarian, and are regarded as the very first settlers of the Goan region. Being a closed community, their masalas and cuisine were largely unknown and untried at one time, but today form the cornerstone of vegetarian Goan cuisine. Versatile and simple, this masala can compliment any vegetable but is traditionally used with tubers.

Heat 2 tsps of oil in a kadai. Add 2 medium onions finely chopped and fry until they become translucent. Add 1 tsp of ginger-garlic paste and continue frying until the onions turn golden brown. Add 1 medium tomato, cut into small pieces, and fry them until they become soft. Add 1 kilo of potatoes cut into bite sized pieces, and mix throughly. After a minute, add 2 tbsps of the Gavli Bhaji masala and mix, coating the potatoes throughly. Add a cup of water and a tbsp of salt. Cover with lid and let it cook for about 8-10 mins.
