It would not be wrong to call this dish our family favourite. It finds a place in my menu whenever I am confused as to what to make:).
It goes well with simple phulkas to make a hearty meal, even better with Puris or Kashmiri Pulao.
I am sending this to the event Think Spice-Think Garam Masala this month being hosted by Sara. This event is the brain child of Sunita.
Here is what you will need:
8-10 baby potatoes boiled, peeled and cut in 2/4 halves depending on the size of the potatoes.
2 large tomatoes, boiled and pureed.
1/2 small onion, boiled and churned.
1 tbsp canned tomato puree ( I use double concentrated)
1 tsp cumin seeds.
1 green chilli chopped.
Few strands of grated ginger.
1 Bay leaf.
1 tbsp oil.
1/2 tsp red chilli powder.
1/4 tsp turmeric powder.
2 tsp coriander powder.
Salt to taste.
1/2 tsp garam masala.
Dried fenugreek leaves.
Chopped coriander leaves to garnish.
Heat a pan and add oil. When heated add the cumin seeds such that they splutter. Add the bay leaf, chopped green chilli and grated ginger and saute for a few seconds. Now add the onion puree and heat for 2 minutes till its cooked and gives a distinct aroma. Now add the canned tomato puree and mix well. Add the fresh tomato puree and stir well and cook for 2 minutes. Now add all the spices except garam masala. and cook for 2-3 minutes so that the spices gives a nice aroma. Add the potatoes and stir so that the gravy is well coated over the potaoes. Cook for 3-4 minutes. Then add the garam masala and dried fenugreek leaves and stir. Heat for 2-3 minutes and take it off gas. Garnish it with chopped coriander leaves and serve.
