aloo peas masala

I tried this potato peas masala recipe from Sabdha’s kitchen. My husband likes a kurma if it is mildly spiced..So i was searching for the same and i got this recipe. . Actually the original recipe was from Mrs. Revathy shanmugam using field beans.Sudha had adapted that recipe and made it using aloo and peas.I too tried the same way but i made a slight change in the recipe to suit our taste buds.I have tried this twice and first time i made with baby potatoes.As i made this kurma for dinner , i couldn’t click in natural light.This is my first attempt in taking a low light picture. Hope it looks OK Winking smile..Soon i’ll update the picture.. The consistency of this masala can be adjusted as per ur wish. I wanted it thick. U can make it watery as sudha made.. Both the ways it tastes great Smile Thank u sudha for this yummy gravy recipe..
