Aloo Masala Kurma & Fried Rice

Aloo Kurma & Fried Rice
I am in the process of cleaning out my freezer and pantry, I had a whole bag of Potato's lying around and frozen mixed vegetables in my freezer. So decided to make Aloo Masala Kurma and fried rice for Saturday brunch.

I must say every time I tried to make this dish, it for some reason turned out bitter because of kuskus, but this time got it right and it tasted delicious

1 tspn of dhania
2 small sticks of dalchini
4 whole cloves
2-3 elachi (optional)
1 tbsp of Kuskus
4 garlic cloves
1/2 inch of garlic
3-4 Red chilies
1 1/2 Onion cut into cubes
3 big Potatoes peeled and cubed
1 cup cauliflower
1 cup peas
1 tbsp of oil
1 tbsp of ghee
1 tspn sugar

1.Fry all the ingredients above except Onion and Potatoes
2. fry for about 2 minutes
3.No grind the above in a mixer, once ground into fine powder add cut onions and grind into fine paste
4. in a pan add oil and ghee, once warm add the above ground paste and fry till it turns brown
5. Now add potatoes, cauliflower and peas ,add salt and a little water
and cook till vegetables turn soft
6. add sugar and mix well
Serve with Fried rice, Puri's or Pulav

I must say this creates a very strong aroma around the house, you can add other vegetables like carrots,beet root etc..
