Aloo Mutter in Coconut gravy

I came home craving for some Paneer based curry after seeing Cinnamon's Paneer Butter Masala....But then my hubby asked me for Aloo Korma.....So I postponed the paneer concept and decided to make Aloo Mutter....This curry is normally made with yogurt, I tried it with coconut and khus-khus gravy..turned out so yummyyyyy and delicious..Hubby dear ended up licking his fingers...:D...

Here's the recipe,

Potatoes/Aloo - 3 (washed, peeled and cut into cubes)
Green peas - 1 cup (boiled) - I used frozen peas
Onion - 1 (chopped)
Khus-Khus - 1 tbsp (soaked in hot water for 10min)
Desicated coconut - 2 tbsp
Coriander (dhania) powder - 1tsp
Cumin powder - 1tsp
Salt - as per taste
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Ginger garlic paste - 2 tsp
Coriander - 1tbsp (chopped)
Oil - 2 tbsp


1. Take water in a saucepan and put the potato cubes in it. Boil for about 10min. Drain the water and keep the potatoes aside.
2. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a kadai. Add the chopped onions and saute until the onions become transperent.
3. Now add the soaked khus-khus seeds and grated coconut. Saute for 2min.
4. Turn off heat and let it cool. Take this mixture in a blender and grind to a smooth paste adding water.
5. Heat the remaining 1 tbsp oil in the same kadai and add the ginger garlic paste. Roast for 2min.
6. Add the ground onion/coconut/khus-khus paste to the kadai and fry for 3-4min.
7. When the paste starts turning brown add the salt, red chilli powder, cumin powder and coriander(dhania) powder. Mix well.
8. Add 200ml of water and let the gravy come to boil.
9. Add the boiled potato cubes and green peas and stir well.
10. Cook for 2 min and turn off the heat.
11. Garnish with coriander and serve hot with Rotis.
