4 medium potatoes, cubed
1 large onion, finely chopped
2 teaspoon garam masala
2 tablespoon dessicated coconut
15 gm fresh ginger, finely grated
2 tablespoon oil
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
6 curry leaves
1 leaves from 1 sprig of
1 coriander

Directions: How to Cook Aloo Masala (Potato Masala Curry)

1. Cook the potato in just enough water to cover with three-quarters of the onion, the turmeric, half teaspoon salt and the green chilli, for about 8 minutes, until half cooked.

2. Meanwhile, blend the garam masala, coconut and ginger in a blender. Add to the potato, and continue to cook for a further 8 minutes, until tender but not soft.

3. Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the mustard seeds. Let them sizzle for a few seconds until they have all popped, then add the remaining chopped onion and fry until golden. Stir into the curry.

4. Add salt to taste and sprinkle on the curry and coriander leaves.

This recipe needs some specifics, such as adding Tumeric to the ingredient list and telling HOW MUCH to use. Also, when it says to cook potatos for 8 minutes, am I cooking them on high, medium or low heat?

I used 5ml turmeric. There is also no indication of how much green chili. I added a cup of peas. The flavours are superb!

I used about a teaspoon of tumeric, I added a teaspoon of cumin (I popped it with the mustard seeds), and I fried the curry leaves with the onion, mustard and cumin instead of just adding them at the end. Turned out really good!
