Potato Kurma.


Potato is a must item in my kitchen and even having one is a life saver sometimes. For vegetarians including Potato and Paneer in a meal is a treat .Sharmis passion posted this recipe and i wanted to give a try. Suddenly an urge to include Chapathis for dinner arose and i am thinking of making many new side dishes to give the blog a new boost .It will also make me manage my time effectively as i will be mostly planning and make pre preparations on what i want for dinner.


Potato -3 large ones

Big Onion – 1

Tomato – 1

Red Chilli powder – 1 tsp

Coriander Powder – 1 and a 1/2 tsp

Garam Masala Powder – 1 tsp

Coriander leaves- just to garnish

To grind to a paste:
