Potato Korma

Judging by the ingredients, many of you will expect today’s Potato Korma recipe to be tasty. Yes, I am confident about your positive reaction to this aloo korma. I did blog a recipe for Aloo Korma earlier but today’s recipe is a slight variation. Just an addition of few more ingredients to the original korma recipe, changes the flavor profile tremendously. The clean flavors of the vegetarian korma makes it an immensely satisfying side with flavored rice like biryani, pulao, roti or chapati.

Fresh coconut, poppy seeds and cashew nuts are the key ingredients which elevate the flavors of the potato korma by leaps and bounds. Do not omit or skimp on these three ingredients if you want to taste the authentic aloo korma.
