Potato freaks as we are, anything and everything with Potatoes in it are most welcome! This is one such kurma which occupies a special place at our table. I try to alter the spices each time but this combination of spices is by far the best. Try it to taste it :)

Ingredients -

Potatoes Cubed 2 large
Milk 1/2 cup (Optional)
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Dhania-Jeera Powder 1 tsp
Amchur Powder (Dry Mango Powder) 1/2 tsp
Salt as per taste
Oil and Jeera for seasoning
Chopped coriander leaves for garnish

For Gravy - 

Onion Chopped and Sauteed 1 medium
Tomato Chopped 1 large
Roasted Sesame Seeds 3 tsp (or Roasted Peanuts 3 Tbsp or Cashews 3 Tbsp)
Coconut (grated or powdered) 1 tsp (Optional)
Ginger Garlic paste 1 tsp
Green Chillies 2-3 (or as per taste)
Cloves 3-4 (or as required)
Cinnamon 2 inch piece
Cardamom 2
Fennel (Sonf) 1/4 tsp (Optional)

Method of preparation - 
Grind all the ingredients in the 'For Gravy' list.

In a hot pan, pour some oil and jeera. After the jeera is a little brown, pour the gravy mixture and saute till oil oozes out. 

Add Turmeric, Dhania-Jeera Powder, Amchur Powder, Salt to the above mixture. Also add a little water if it starts getting burnt.

Add the cubed potatoes to the mixture and cover with a lid so all the flavors get into the potato cubes and they get cooked well. To speed up the process, I microwave the potato cubes with a little salt and 1/2 cup of water until they are almost cooked (about 5-6 min in my microwave) and add it to the gravy.

Tip - Always add enough water and cover with a paper towel or a microwave safe plate/lid when cooking veggies in the microwave.

When the gravy comes together and oil oozes out, add a little milk and let it boil for a couple min to make a silky gravy! This is totally optional.

Switch off the flame , garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve it hot with roti/naan or with rice!
