Yogurt based Potato Curry

There are many varieties of dishes called 'curries'. For example, in original traditional cuisines, the precise selection of spices for each dish is a matter of national or regional cultural tradition, religious practice, and, to some extent, family preference. Such dishes are called by specific names that refer to their ingredients, spicing, and cooking methods. Traditionally, spices are used both whole and ground; cooked or raw; and they may be added at different times during the cooking process to produce different results. 

This Sabzi or Curry of Aloo is the perfect and comfort food for lunch or in dinner. I made this Sabzi yesterday for our Dinner, and it goes well with Hot Paratha. Sometimes you really want to eat Something which is delicious and tasty. Curries may be either 'dry' or 'wet'. Dry curries are cooked with very little liquid which is allowed to evaporate, leaving the other ingredients coated with the spice mixture. Wet curries contain significant amounts of sauce or gravy based on yogurt, Cream, coconut milk, coconut cream, legume puree. Although wet curries play a smaller role, elsewhere, there are a number of vegetarian examples with gravies based on buttermilk or coconut milk. The main ingredient may variously be brinjal (eggplant or aubergine), potatoes, fresh corn kernels, okra, tomatoes, etc. In addition, there are several common kofta dishes which, of course, substitute vegetables. This Yogurt based curry is made with so many spices and with yogurt, Tomato, onion and garlic paste.

Kitchen King Masala is one of my favorite Masala powder and it's used in many North Indian recipes. There are so many Masalas brand available in market, But I love to use Eastern  masalas. I do use all the Spices, all the ready to eat stuff from this Brand. As I always say when it comes to Masalas in any curry or in any food, They must be just perfect, and this Eastern Kitchen king Masala is synonymous of perfectness. My curry turned out very delicious by using this masala and I was so happy to use it. Try out the recipe below by using Eastern Kitchen King Masala and Enjoyyy it in your lunch or in dinner.
