Aloo Kurma / Potato Curry

 For the final day of week 3, am here with the popular dish Aloo kurma. This is one of the simplest recipe ever made with very few ingredients.  Usually served hot with roti, naan or pulao. Frying the potatoes in oil and then adding to gravy makes the dish much more tasty.

Here goes the recipe.....




We need:

Potato  2 large
Onion 1 medium
Tomato 1 medium
Cashew nuts 10
Poppy seeds 3spoons
Garam masala 1spoon
Haldi / turmeric  1/4 spoon
Ginger garlic paste 1/2 spoon
Chili powder 1spoon
Curry leaves 5
Salt to taste
Oil 4 spoons
Chopped cilantro 2spoons



Method:


Soak cashew nuts and poppy seeds separately in hot water for 1 hr.
Make a smooth paste mixing both and keep aside.
Cut potatoes into bite size pieces and boil till 1/2 done
Now deep fry these oil till nice brown color appears on the top.
Now a pan and add 4 spoons oil.
Now add chopped onions, ginger garlic paste and curry leaves.
Cook till onions  turn into light brown color.
Now add chopped tomato, chili powder, garam masala, haldi and salt to taste.
Mix well, turn the flame to medium  and cover to cook further.
Now add the cashew and poppy seeds paste and 1 glass water.
Cover and cook for 5 minutes.
Now add the fried potato and cook further for another 5 minutes.
Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve hot with roti or pulao.

The addition of cashew-poppy seeds paste must make the basic potato curry a rich and yummy one.
