Bangaladumpa Masala Kura | Aloo Masala Sabji

Christmas has just passed on & New Year is ahead of us & I am so excited that this year I have accomplished a lot compared to previous years.This year I was planning on a Christmas tree but it in the last min we changed our plans & compromised with making a fruit cake/ plum cake for Christmas.

3 Large potatoes  (Cut in cubes)
2 Tomatoes chopped
1 Large onion chopped
2 Tbs oil (Add if you need more)
1/2 Star anise 
1 Inch Cinnamon 
2 Cloves 
1 Tbs ginger garlic paste 
1 Tbs coriander cumin powder 
1 Tbs garam masala powder 
2 Tsp chili powder (Optional)
Pinch of turmeric
Salt for taste
Coriander leaves for garnish

Heat a pan with 1tbs oil add star anise, cinnamon & cloves & fry them. Add ginger garlic paste,onions to pan & fry till onions turn transparent.Then add tomatoes to it. cook till tomatoes are cooked soft. 
Switch off heat & allow it to cool. Grind it to smooth paste.
Heat a pan with 1tbs oil & fry potato for few seconds & remove them. Add the tomato gravy to pan along with garam masala, coriander cumin, Chili powder turmeric & salt to it. Add potato to the gravy & mix well.cook it with a lid till oil separates on the sides. Check for potatoes if they are cooked well.
Garnish with coriander leaves & serve.

1. Skip frying potatoes & instead add cubed potatoes directly to gravy.
2. You can exclude star anise from the recipe.
