    MrsMM's Note:

    A friend shared this recipe with me, and it's really great. Easy to do and the best part- no onions to chop or become teary-eyed over. Nice change from the norm. Serve as a main dish with rotis or rice for 2, or for 4 as a side to your Indian meal. Enjoy!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Boil whole potatoes in salted water until they are easy to peel- they should not be mushy. If you have the larger variety of small potatoes, cut them in half.
    2. 2
      While potatoes are boiling, grind together the tomatoes, red chili, ginger and garlic. Set aside.
    3. 3
      Prick the peeled and boiled potatoes with a fork and lightly saute them in 1 tbsp canola oil until they have a light golden crust and set aside on a plate.
    4. 4
      While the potatoes are frying, make a powder of the cloves, cardamoms, fennel seeds and whisk the powder with the yogurt. Set aside.
    5. 5
      In a pan, heat the remaining 1 tbsp canola oil, and add the tomato mixture.
    6. 6
      Cook, stirring frequently for 5-7 mins or until the raw smell of tomatoes and garlic is gone.
    7. 7
      Add the yogurt mixture slowly to the pan, continue stirring for 1-2 minutes.
    8. 8
      Add salt to taste, cumin powder and garam masala. If it looks dry, add about 1/2 cup of water at this point, and allow to cook for 5 minutes on low heat.
    9. 9
      Add the potatoes, stir well, cover and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the gravy is moderately chunky.
    10. 10
      Garnish with cilantro if you like, and serve!

      This turned out wonderful. I used potatoes that I had boiled the day before so they would not be mushy. The only thing that I added was a handful of kasuri methi leaves at the end. This is a definite winner! Thanks for sharing.

      WOW, what a winner this is. Easy to cook. Full of flavour. A sensation. I followed the recipe as is, can't fault it. I then tried to get a bit cheffy with it and added some spinach, this changed the dish a little and gave another dimension, but, didn't improve the dish in any way. I made this for dinner, but, could not wait so had it for lunch !!!! just as it came from the pot. Loverly grub. The photos don't do the dish justice. Thanks for sharing this SUPER dish with us.
