Aloo masala

I am back after a long time as my children and grand children came to spend time with us.I was very busy with them and was not able to even peek into the blogging world.It took a few days to come out of the emptiness and anyway life has to go on...Isn't it?

Coming to the recipe, this is a very easy dish to prepare and very tasty too..


Aloo(Potato)--------------------------- 3 or 4 medium size
Turmeric Powder-----------------------1 small teaspoon
Red chilly Powder----------------------1 Tsp
Dhaniya Powder(coriander)-------------2 Tsp
JeeraPowder(Cumin)--------------------1/2 Tsp
Garam masala---------------------------1 1/2 Tsp
Oil---------------------------------------2 Tbsp
Chopped coriander leaves----------------2 Tbsp
Salt as required


Peel and dice the Potato and rinse it in cold water.Immerse and keep it.Grind the onion and tomato and make it into a puree.Just add enough water to rinse the grinder and pour it into the puree. Heat oil in a thick bottomed vessel and put the turmeric powder and immediately add the puree and stir well.Add  chilly powder and salt and drain the diced potato and add to the puree.Cover it and cook in a low flame.Stir occasionally. Once the potatoes are cooked evenly add the coriander powder,cumin powder and the garam masala.Cook for 5 minutes ans garnish with coriander leaves.The yummy Aloo masala is ready to serve.This goes well with Ghee rice,Chappati.Puri.Paratha etc,
