Dhariwala Recipe- Potato and peas Curry

I love green peas. This is one of the simplest recipe I have tried. It goes well with chappati and even poori.

Potatoes- 3 (boiled)
Green Peas- 1 cup (boiled)
Tomatoes- 2
Cumin Seeds- 1 tsp
Asafoetida- a pinch
Oil- 1 tbsp
Chilly Powder- 1/2  tsp
Turmeric Powder- 1/4 tsp
Coriander Powder- 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala- 1/2 tsp

List 1:
Onion- 2
Coriander Leaves- a bunch
Garlic- 4 cloves

1. Grind the ingredients on List 1 in a blender without adding water.
2. In a pan add oil followed by Cumin seeds followed by asafoetida and once it turns slightly brown add the blended onion paste and cook till the raw smell disappears.
3. Add the spices (Chilly Powder, Turmeric Powder, Coriander Powder, Garam Masala) and mix well.
4. Make a puree out of tomatoes and add it to the onion paste followed by 1 cup water and cook for another 3 min.
5. Add the boiled green peas and potatoes another cup of water and cook for another 5 min.
6. Garnish with coriander leaves.
