Potato Kurma

This is a delicious potato Kurma. It's mildly spicy and yummy. I make this for breakfast, to have with appam, puttu or idiappam. Goes well with chapati, naan or rice dishes.


2 big - Potatoes, cut into small cubes
1 big - Tomato, quartered

To grind to paste

1 cup - Grated coconut
4 - Green chili's
2 - garlic flakes
1 inch piece - Ginger
1 stick - Cinnamon
4 - Cloves
1/4 tsp - Black pepper powder

1/2 tsp - Fennel seeds
1 tsp - Coriander seeds

1 tsp - Poppy seeds/ Khus-Khus
3 tbsp - Yogurt/curds

Garnish and Season

2 - Shallots,diced
1 cup - Coriander leaves, chopped


1) Boil potato and tomato in enough water, till potatoes are cooked well.
2 ) In a pan, fry the 4 green chili's lightly. Now add the fried chili's into a blender/grinder, along with rest of the ingredients listed to be ground. Grind to a smooth paste with water.
3 ) Add to the cooked potato. Add more water to make a thick curry consistency. Add salt to taste. Cook to a boil. Take off the stove.
4 ) In a pan fry the shallots to a light brown colour. Add the chopped coriander and lightly fry. Garnish the potato kurma.


1 ) Add other vegetables like peas, carrot, cauliflower.....for a mixed vegetable kurma.
2 ) Boil eggs and add to the kurma.
