Aloo Muttar Korma

For this weeks "CCC challenge" I have another one of Tarla Dalal's recipe from her cook "Punjabi Subzis". I have tried all the recipes in this book and this one of the recipes which everyone likes in my house.. I have quite a few variations of this recipe have followed the recipe from the book for this post.

You need:

Potato - 2 cup cooked and cubed into 1 inch pieces
Green Peas - 1 1/2 cup cooked
Thick curd - 3 tbsp whisked
Cream - 2 tbsp
Punjabi Garam Masala - 1 tsp
Butter - 1 tsp
Ghee - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste

For the paste
Onion - 1 cup roughly chopped
Green chillies - 3 chopped (~ 2 tsp)
Ginger - 1" piece finely chopped
Cashew nuts - 2 tbsp broken


Method:
For the paste:
Heat one cup of water in a pan
Add the ingredients for the paste and let it boil on small - medium flame for 15 mins
When cooled grind into a fine paste and keep aside.

Now heat the ghee in the kadai
Add the paste and saute till the mixture leaves oil from the sides
Add the cooked potato, peas, curd, cream, salt and simmer for 3 - 4 mins
Add the punjabi Garam masala and butter and mix well.
Serve hot 

Notes:
I mashed ~ 2 tbsp potato and mixed it with the gravy to give it body

This is off to the CC Challenge November Edition - Week 2
