Nariyal aur Kaju ki Aloo Sabzi (Coconut Potato Curry with Cashews)

Hello Friends,


In my search for making something special for my Veggie/Fruit A Month - Coconut event, I search through my blogger friends' blogs as I wanted to try something different than usual coconut recipes. When I came across this, I thought I hit a jackpot. It was a nice and mild curry, fit for a potluck, which is where it was first presented and I was really happy with the results.


I grabbed this from my fellow blogger Meeta's blog What's For Lunch Honey? I don't think she even needs an introduction. Go check out her blog !!! :)


This is a wonderful curry for people who cannot or do not eat onion/garlic as this has none. And the nice, rich creamy texture blows your mind off with that amazing taste of coconut milk. If you are a fan of potato and coconut milk, this is your curry.


Now, without further ado, here is the recipe


Nariyal aur Kaju ki Aloo Sabzi (Coconut Potato Curry with Cashews)
Ingredients

Potatoes - 7-8 russet potatoes (I made it for a party so so many, but for a family of 4, 3 potatoes should be enough), peal, cube and steam them for 10-15 min. Feel free to use baby potatoes as well.
Coconut Milk - 2 cups
Cashews - 1/2 cup, soaked for 10-15 minutes and then chop them
Tomato Paste  - 1/4 cup
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Red Chili Powder - 1-2 tsps, depending on your preference
Coriander Powder  - 1-2 tsp
Garam Masala Powder - 1 tsp
Oil - 2 tbsps
Salt - as per taste
Coriander - for garnishing

Preparation

  • Heat a non-stick pan and add oil to it.
  • Add cumin seeds and let them splutter.
  • Add cashews to it and roast them till golden color comes.
  • Add steamed potato cubes and coat them well with oil and cumin/cashew.
  • Add 1 cup of water mixed with tomato paste and mix it well to coat potato with it.
  • Simmer on low heat for about 5 minutes.
  • Add all the spice powders and let it cook again for about 3 minutes.
  • Now, add coconut milk and let it simmer till gravy thickens.
  • Take it off the heat and garnish with cilantro.

Serving
We enjoyed them with naans and rice. It was a mild curry when made with this recipe. But, feel free to up the heat level as you need.

That's all for now. Take care till next post.
