Potato Korma

Potato Korma

Judging by the ingredients, many of you will expect today’s Potato Korma to be tasty. Yes, I am confident about your positive reaction to this 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 or pulao.

    Looks Yummy. I like the taste when Poppy seeds are added. But while grinding, they are not getting grinded to a smooth paste. What to do for this

      Soak the poppy seeds in few tbsps of milk for a few mts and grind to a paste.
