Simple Alo Kurma/Simple Potato curry

This kurma is my mom's recipe.This recipe is tried and tested many times.In this recipe there is no need to fry the masala,onions or potatoes. Believe me the taste is haven.........
Potatoes 4
Onions 1
Green chillies 2
Coriander powder 1/2tbsp
Ginger garlic paste 1/2tbsp
Curd 1/2 cup
Red chilly powder 1/2tsp
Oil 2 tbsp
Salt as per paste


Fresh coconut 1/4 cup(grated)
Cinnamon 1 small piece
Cloves 2
Khus-khus 1 tsp
Make a fine paste of the above ingredients and keep aside.
How to make it:-

*Mix all the ingredients with the grounded masala with little water and pressure cook for 3-4 whistles.The no of whistles depends upon on the pressure cooker used.I served this with puri.
Btw my mom has got a visa and she will be joining us here in UAE on this 30th.More than me my kids are excited about her coming here.
Khus-khus is optional.In this country khus-khus is banned,so i used cashew nuts and roasted Channa dal (putnalu pappu).
