Bangaladumpa Gasagasala Kura | Potato in Poppy seed gravy | Aloo ki Sabji

When I'm confused what to cook for lunch my mom comes very handy solving my confusions. She has a cook book of her own inventions & few gathered one's too. I generally call it a secret cook book. 
This is one of those recipes from my mom. 

3 Medium Potatoes
Cilantro for garnish 
For Gravy
1 medium Onion chopped
2 Tomatoes chopped
2 Tbs Poppy Seeds (GasaGasalu)
2 Tbs Coconut powder
1 Tbs Coriander Cumin powder 
Pinch of Tumeric powder
2 Red chilli's
2 Tbs of Oil 

Scrap potatoes and cut them in to small cubes. ( you can even cut big pieces too). Bring water to boil with pinch of salt in a vessel. Add potatoes & close it with a lid. Once the potatoes are done filter out the water and keep outside.
Mean while heat a pan with oil and add onions to it.Fry them for few secs n switch off the heat. Let it cool down for few mins. 

For Gravy: 
Grind Onions, tomatoes, poppy seeds, coconut powder, Red chili & salt to a smooth paste.
Heat the pan ( No need to add oil as there is little left oil in it) n add the ground paste & add coriander cumin powder. Cook it with a lid for 10 mins. Add potatoes to gravy and cook it for another 10mins & the curry is ready.
Garnish with cilantro.

Out come: Curry has a sweetish taste to it. It's just yum yum with roti.
