12 Potatoes, 1 1/2 pounds
2 Onion, rough chopped
3 Cloves garlic
1/2 Inch ginger
3 Tablespoon(s) Vegetable oil
1/2 Tablespoon(s) Cumin
Salt to taste
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Cayenne
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Turmeric
2 Tomatoes, coarsely chopped
1 Cup(s) Peas
1/4 Cup(s) Water
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Garam masala
Cook the potatoes until tender. Peel and set aside. In the container
of a blender or food processor, puree the onions, garlic, and ginger.
In a large heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat, warm the oil. Add
the cumin. When the cumin darkens (1 to 2 seconds) add the purred
onion mixture and saute until browned (about 12 minutes). Add the
salt, cayenne, turmeric, and tomatoes and cook until they soften
(about 5 minutes). Add the peas and water, reduce heat to low, cover
and cook for 5 minutes. Halve the cooked potatoes and add them to the
skillet and cook covered another 5 minutes. Mix in the garam masala
just before serrving. Note: Do not overcook the potatoes in the first
step. Recipe by: Smita Chandra Posted to MC-Recipe Digest V1 #1053 by on Jan 26, 1998
