Instructions

  • In a pan, add oil (2 Tsp) and fry potato cubes, peas (matar) and cottage cheese.
  • Sprinkle salt.
  • Mix well and slightly fry.
  • Take it out as vegetables change the color.
  • Now in the same pan, add (2 Tsp) oil.
  • Also add cumin (⅓ tsp), curry leaves (5 to 6) and green chilies (4).
  • Saute by adding ⅓ Cup of chopped onion.
  • As the onion changes the color add spices.
  • Add red chili powder (1 Tsp), turmeric (⅓ Tsp).
  • Also, add a mix of coriander powder and garam masala powder (1 Tsp).
  • Mix well and cook on high heat to get rid of spice rawness.
  • Now take a big tomato (deseed and peel the skin) cut it into cubes and add in a curry.
  • Mix well.
  • Add 50 ml of water.
  • Cover and cook for 5 minutes on low medium heat to soften the tomatoes.
  • After that smooth the curry with a fork.
  • Cook on high heat until the oil gets visible.
  • Add fried potatoes and mix well.
  • Also add, 70 ml of water.
  • Cover the pan and cook for about 10 minutes on low medium heat.
  • Now add fried peas (matar) in the pan and again cook for 10 minutes on low medium heat.
  • After 10 minutes, add cottage cheese and gently mix with curry.
  • Cover again and cook for about 5 minutes.
  • Now the curry is ready to serve.
  • You can serve with roti, paratha or steamed rice.

Notes

  • Avoid waxy potatoes as it's sugary in taste and contains less starch. I personally use Russet, Idaho, or King Edward as they are tastier to eat. 
  • Peel the tomato skin and remove the seeds before use as it will make a smooth curry texture. 
  • Don't overcook the vegetables otherwise they will deform in shape.
  • Pre-frying of vegetables and cheese makes it extra delicious.
  • Use the proper quantity of spices.
