This Aloo Kurma is my grandma s speciality dish which my mom inherited and now I make it often for dinner in a jiffy. One more interesting aspect of this dish is that I will surely get appreciation from my dad when I make this .
Aloo - 2 boiled , peeled
Onions - 1 sliced
Tomato - 1 Sliced
Coconut - 1 cup
Green chillies - 2
Cilantro - a handful
Ginger Garlic paste - 1 Tea spoon
Clove , Cardomom , Cinnamon - 1 each
A Pinch of Garam Masala Powder
Salt to taste
Boil the potatoes and peel them. Cut them into small pieces and keep them aside. In the blender mix Coconut and green chillies to a fine paste . In a wok heat a little oil , add the spices followed by the sliced onions and tomatoes. Saute till the onions are light brown in color. Add the boiled potatoes and the coconut paste . Bring it to boil. Add a pinch of Garam masala for the aroma . When the kurma is done , that is when the flavour of raw green chillies is gone , remove from fire add salt and garnish with fresh cilantro. This goes well with chapathi or roti.
