A common in South Indian restaurants, a dish that is liked by all. Poori with Aloo masala also called Poori Kizhangu or served with spicy Kurma, whichever way, its a aure treat.

So here goes my favourite.... a sunday brunch item....

Knead dough and keep aside for 1/2 hour. Make pooris, deep fry and serve hot.

For Aloo Kurma

½ tsp Red chilli powder
1 tsp Coriander /

3 stks Coriander leaves (for garnishing)
1 tsp Ghee

Poppy seeds
¼ cup Water (approx)

Curry leaves
1 Bay leaf
¼ tsp
Cumin seeds
¼ tsp
Fennel seeds
2 Cloves
2 Cardamon
2 Cinnamon stick (small)

Grind coconut, khus khus and water to make a thick paste and keep aside. Wash and peel the potatoes, cube them and keep aside. Heat oil and ghee in a pressure cooker, add cumin, fennel, cloves, cardamom, bay leaf, cinnamon and fry them for few seconds then add chopped onions and green chilli saute until golden. Now add the ginger garlic paste and fry for few seconds. Add the tomatoes along with turmeric , red chilli powder, coriander powder, salt and cubed potatoes.
