white potato curry

Yesterday I was watching the BBC "Saturday Live" cookery programme hosted by James Martin.  Whenever the word "curry" comes up, I pay attention to it.... you can always learn to create some new unusual things...One of the recipe they were cooking was  "Thai Monkfish Curry", The curry looked nice the way it was presented... I wanted to cook something like this!! Being a vegetarian, fish was out of the way, so I was thinking which ingredients shall I use for making something white (yes the fish curry was white)...thought about paneer, but I didn't have..coconut milk- hardly I use in my cooking because high in saturated came up with an idea to use a potatoes, almond and couscous paste for my dish!!!!!!!!!  Made it yesterday evening, came out a pale creamy colour than white..but loved it too....

You will need:-

  • 2 Medium potatoes(washed, peeled and cut in to small cubes)
  • 8-10 Blanched almonds(i used 1tbsp ground almonds readymade)
  • 1tsp white poppy seeds
  • 1 medium onion pureed
  • 2 tsp ginger-garlic paste

  • 4-5 green cardamom
  • 3-4 cloves
  • 2 piece of cinamon
  • 2 dry red chillies
  • 7-8 whole black pepper
  • 1tsp dry coriander seeds

  • 1tbsp yogurt
  • 1/2 cup milk any
  • salt to taste
  • 2-3 tbsp oil


Keep cut potatoes in a water. Make almond and poppy seeds thick paste by adding water. In a heavy bottom pan heat the oil, add all the whole masala except coriander seeds, fry them when they crackel add corinder seeds and fry few seconds.  Add pureed onion and ginger-garlic paste and saute till oil comes out now add just potatoes and mix well.  Now add paste and yogurt , let the mix dry and add enough water to cook the potatoes.(10-15 minutes).  when potatoes are cooked add milk and cook further 2-3 minutes and ready to serve...
