curry to dip poori - alloo sabzi

there are some curries which stay with you and when you miss the taste of home you go deep in the recess of your mind and search the fragrance be it freshly grounded roasted cumin or fiery red chili ot stays with you
you keep searching till you can feel the fragrance and that's when you know that you are home

I love to dunk poori in this curry whch has just these two ingredients - potato and tomato
I call this two potato and three tomato curry


tomato coarsely chopped three
potato cubed two
mustard oil one tbsp.
ginger garlic paste one tbsp
pinch of asafoetida
cumin seeds one tsp
salt as per taste
turmeric powder one tsp
red chili powder one tsp


heat oil in a wok
add heeng and cumin seeds let it splutter
add ginger garlic paste let it brown for a minute or two
add the powdered spices followed by tomato
keep stirring till oil is seen along the sides
add the potato and fry till the colour changes
now add water .cover and cook
after half an hour check if potato is done

chicken drumsticks for busy nights

Its been so long since I removed dust form here each year I tell myself I will try to update this space more often but I fail with the laptop plugged and trying to remember the password and other things it feels good to write here without inhibition of time or thinking about hashtag.
Yesterday after a long time we both were alone at home advay loves to eat chicken drumsticks
I didn't do much effort marinated the chicken drumsticks with curd, ginger garlic paste and meat masala .
After few minutes pan fried the same. While I paired it with cranberry bread advay had with chapathi.
This is best for weekends or when you don't have much time.
