Aloo Mutter/ Potato Dry Peas Kurma

This is a traditional accompaniment to chapatis and rotis and made with potatoes and dry peas. The dry peas can also be substituted with fresh or frozen peas. This curry also tastes great with pulao or plain white rice.
Dry green Peas - 2 cups
Potato - 1
Chilli powder - 1 teaspoon
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Garam masala - 1/2 teaspoon
Oil - 1 spoon
Salt to taste

To grind into a smooth paste:
Onion - 1 medium sized
Tomato - 1 big sized
Grated coconut - 1/2 cup
Garlic - 2 cloves
Ginger - 1 inch
Coriander seeds/Dhania - 1 teaspoon
Cumin seeds/Jeera - 1 teaspoon
Green chillies - 1

Soak the dry peas overnight.

Next day, pressure cook the soaked dry peas and potato in a pressure cooker until it gets well cooked.

Grind all the ingredients listed to make a smooth masala.

In a kadai, heat the oil and add the ground masala. Fry till the raw smell goes away. Add chopped tomatoes, turmeric powder, chilli powder, garam masala and salt. Let the tomatoes get mushy and well cooked. Add about 1 cup of water and bring it to a boil. Finally add the pressure cooked peas and boiled and diced potato to the mixture and allow it to come to a boil.

Simmer for about 5 to 6 minutes, until you get the required consistency. Garnish with coriander leaves.
Serve warm with chapatis. rotis, dosas or rice.
