Ingredients

  • 15 - baby Potatoes/new Potatoes
  • 1 - large Tomato
  • 1 - onion, chopped
  • 2 - Green chillies
  • 1" piece - Ginger
  • 3 Cloves - Garlic (or 1 tbsp of ginger-Garlic paste)
  • 2 tbsp - Curd
  • 1 tbsp - oil
  • salt to taste

    3. Grind the onion, garlic, ginger, and green chillies into a paste.
    4. Beat the curd to remove lumps, if any, and mix the spices in it. Stir well to make a paste. Add a little water if too thick.
