Nilgiri Potato Kurma

Delicious side dish which suits prefectly for rotis as well as gravy for rice, i prepared this kurma as Nilgiri kurma using spice paste prepared with mint leaves, coriander leaves, green chillies,coconut and poppyseeds..This kurma looks green in colour and tastes truly tremendous when they served with anything, u can make this kurma either with mixed veggies or with chicken or else with lamb, but i went for a simple version using potatoes..Its seems this recipe is originated from the Nilgiri tribes who make their dishes using fresh green herbs from the hills..Most of us know about Nilgiri hills, they are well known for their greeneries, fresh herbs and for their mountains..This kurma will be super spicy and hot, they goes prefect along with naan,parottas and chappathis..

Potato Kurma

3nos Potatoes (cubed)
1no Onion (chopped)
1tsp Ginger garlic paste
1no Tomato
2nos Whole spices (bayleaves, cloves, cinnamon stick,anise)
1tsp Fennel seeds
Few curry leaves
Oil
Salt

To Grind:
1/4cup Mint leaves
1/4cup Coriander leaves
3nos Green chillies
1/4cup Coconut
1tsp Peppercorns

Grind all the ingredients given under list 'to grind' everything as fine paste..Keep aside..Heat enough oil, fry the whole spices, fennel seeds,curry leaves, add immediately the chopped onions,ginger garlic paste and salt, sauté everything for few minutes until the raw smell goes away, add now the chopped tomatoes,sauté for few minutes, finally add the grounded paste, stir in for few minutes..Add the cubed potatoes, enough water, cook everything in medium flame until the veggies get cooked well..

Serve hot as side dish..
