Vegetarian Nadan Chicken Curry

We are in to the second week of Blogging Marathon & this week we are blogging on "Meatless Dishes". I went crazy with looking for recipes that might look something similar to the original recipe & here I decided to make "Nadan Chicken Curry" where in replacing chicken with potatoes. 

Recipe Courtesy:Swasthi of Indian Healthy Recipes
For gravy
½ Cup chopped onions
½ Cup chopped tomatoes
1 Tsp ginger garlic paste
½ Cup coconut milk
2 Tbs sesame oil
For marinating potatoes
1 Tbs yogurt
1 Tsp red chili powder
½ Tsp garam masala powder 
Pinch of turmeric
2 Large potatoes diced
For masala paste
1 Inch cinnamon
4 cloves
2 cardmon pods
1 Tsp black pepper powder
1 Tsp fennel seeds
1 & ½ Tbs coriander seeds
4 Red chili’s (adjust acc. to your taste)
For seasoning
1 Tbs mustard
½ Cup thinly sliced onions
Few curry leaves 


Mix all the ingredients for marinating  & set aside for 30mins
Grounded masala
Dry roast all the ingredients under masala paste. Grind them with little water to make a smooth paste.

Heat a pan with oil. To that add onions & fry them to medium brown. To that add ginger garlic paste & tomatoes & sauté them.
To that add marinated potatoes & masala paste. Add the desired salt. I added a ½ cup water to adjust the moisture in curry. Cook with a lid for 10mins.
Now add the coconut cream & mix it well. Cook on low heat for 5mins & switch off heat.
Heat a pan with oil & to that add mustards, onions & curry leaves. Fry them for 2 mins. Add it to the curry. 

Serve it with Roti's, chapati's & paratha's.
