Spicy Baby Potato Curry

The original recipe here was titled Aloo Masaledar. I am not sure about that, since I find many different variants for the recipe. But it was good. And was it SPICY!  So, I cut down a bit of the spice. Taste before serving and that can be adjusted with more spice if necessary.

Baby Potatoes – 20
Tomatoes – 3-4 medium chopped ( better to use tomato  paste 4 tbsp– I think that will give a smoother texture)
Onions – 2 medium finely diced
Green chilies – 2 finely diced again. ( original recipe called for more – but use at your discretion)
Ginger – ½ tsp grated
Turmeric – ½ tsp
Cumin – ¼ tsp
Chili powder – to taste
Garam masala – ¼ tsp
Curry leaves – break into smaller bits
Coriander leaves – chopped finely
Salt to taste

Boil potatoes till just done. Peel
Shallow fry in a little oil till slightly brown.
In a pan heat oil, add green chilies, cumin, ginger and onions. Sauté on low heat for about 10 minutes
Add the tomatoes/paste, turmeric, chili powder, garam masala, curry leaves, coriander leaves. Simmer.
Prick the potatoes and add.  Mix well. Add salt to taste Simmer for a few more minutes
