Today, since its a weekend(Happy friday), I thought of making some thing apart from rice and enjoy it along with a movie.So, I made Aloo kurma and Puri, which are easy and does'nt need any prior preparations.We were watching "Bombay to Goa" movie.yeah! It's an Amithab Bhachan movie.We were wordering, seeing him so young and thin and tall.It seems after this movie only he got his first break as full fleged hero in "Zanzeer".It is always pleasant to watch old movies.Haa..now coming back to my recipe "Aloo kurma", here is the preparation.
3 potatoes (peeled, cut into small cubes and washed)
1/2 cup frozen or fresh peas(fresh need to be boiled separately, to avoid delay while cooking)
1 small size onion (cut into thin slices)
3 Tomatoes (cut into thin slices)
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp kuskus (gasagasalu)
1 tsp fresh coconut powder
1 tsp coriander powder( dhaniya powder)
1/4 tsp Garam masala
1/2 cup fresh coriander (washed and cut into small)
Salt as required
Oil as required
1. Heat oil in a container for few seconds then add onions and fry till light brown in color.
2. Add peas,potatoes and fry for some time.Add ginger garlic paste and turmeric to it and fry for few more minutes.
3. Add tomatoes and salt and allow to cook on medium heat till potatoes become little tender.
4.Now add red chilli powder,coriander powder,garam masala powder and little water if needed and cook for some time till all spices mixed well with other ingredients.
5.Now finally add coconut powder,kuskus and fresh coriander and cook for some more time.
6.Finally you can add some lemon juice(1/2 tsp) which is optional.
Goes well with puri (also with rice and chapathis).
