Dum Aloo (with no Onion or Garlic)

This curry is made by my co-sister on Monday and the credit totally goes to her. The taste was awesome and made in few minutes only. People who love tomatos and potatos will very well love this curry. Another nice thing about this curry is that, it does not have any big masala's and no onion or garlic to it. I loved both parts of it because, I can make this curry on a festival day and offer it to god without compromising on the favor and taste. So god get to have this yummy food too ..... cool isn't it. I am so tempted to add it to blog. OK...No more talking... here goes the recipe

Potatos - 5
Tomatos - 3 - chopped any size
Coriander powder
Mustard seeds
Jeera (Cumin seeds)
Red chilli powder

Method of preparation
1)Boil the potatos and chop it into big chunks. Alternatively you can use the baby potatos and use fork to prick it after removing the top layer of them. (I used microwave to boil potatos than traditional way, saved me time/vessel cleaning/stove time). :).
2) Take a kadai on stove top and add little oil to it. Now add mustard seeds (after oil is heated). After mustard seeds splutter add jeera (cumin seeds) to it. Add chopped tomatos and let it cook thoroughly. Mix the tomato in between.
3) Add turmeric, salt and red chilli powder to the above. After tomato is cooked properly, allow it to cool and then grind the mixture in a blender.
4) Take kadai (either same cleaned one or different one) and very little oil (may be 1-2 spoons) and add the tomato paste to it. Add some water to it and let it cook until the mixture thickens a little bit. Now add the boiled potatos to it.
5) cover and cook for 5 mintues or some time until the potatos have the gravy taste to it. Turn off stove and transfer the curry in serving bowl. Garnish with Coriander and it is ready to be served with either chapati or rice. Enjoy!!
