Aloo & Tomato Kurma

Potatoes are always our favourite veggies, they have their own place in my vegetable basket..Its has been a long i prepared kurma with potatoes and tomatoes, as i bought some juicy ripen tomatoes which are sitting sadly in my fridge asking me to turn them something delicious i wanted to combine both potatoes and tomatoes to make this delicious gravy..Usually i always makes potato kurma without using coconut milk and make a paste using fried grams and spices, this time i didnt went for them and completely replaced them with coriander powder, grounded tomato paste,fennel seed powder and thick coconut milk to making this droolworthy kurma, this kurma goes terribly awesome along with rice, rotis,any breakfast dishes and simply with toasted bread slices.

Aloo Kurma

2cups Potatoes (cubed)
1no Onion (big & chopped)
2nos Tomatoes (big & juicy)
1tbsp Coriander powder
1tsp Fennel seed powder
1/2tsp Cumin seed powder
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
1tsp Red chilly powder
1cup Thick coconut milk
2nos Bayleave, cloves,cinnamon stick & cardamom seeds
1tsp Ginger garlic paste
Salt
Oil
Mint leaves (chopped)

Heat enough oil, fry the whole spices until they turns brown, add immediately the chopped onions and ginger garlic paste, saute everything until the raw smells goes away, meanwhile grind the tomatoes as fine paste, now add the fennel seed powder, cumin seed powder, red chilly powder to the cooking onions along with salt, saute for few minutes, now add the coriander powder,turmeric powder and cubed potatoes, cook for few minutes again, now add the tomato paste, cook for 5 minutes, finally add the coconut milk,water to make a thick kurma, check for salt..Bring everything to boil and cook in simmer until the oil gets separates..

Add the chopped mint leaves and serve hot..
