Potatoes in Yogurt Sauce

A quick spicy dish for yogurt lover Sia for her event Ode to potatoes .

4-5 small potatoes boiled.
1 cup yogurt.
2 tsp oil .
1/2 tsp kitchen king masala.
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp cumin seeds .
1/2 tsp turmeric powder.
salt to taste
2 tsp cumin- coriander seeds powder.

Remove skin from boiled potatoes and keep it aside.Let it cool then prick the potatoes with a fork . In a separate bowl mix the turmeric powder , salt yogurt and 1 cup water .beat it untill there is no lumps in the mixture. In a pan heat the oil to medium add cumin seeds to it , then carefully place the potatoes into the pan and then pour the yogurt mixture to it , while adding this turn heat to low keep it cooking on low tomedium heat for a while . Add kitchen king Masala and red chillo powder to it . cook it for a while as yougert thickens the oil portion will start floating over the curry . at this stage add cumin coriander powder and little salt if needed.Cover and cook until potatoes become tender and gravy becomes half to original size. Turn off the heat .

This curry need time to get its real taste.As you will keep it aside for 1 hour or so , the potatoes absorbs more of the tastes of gravy and tastes better. I like it better even the next day. This goes well with rice and Paratha.
Thanks Sia for lovely event , Hope you will have fun rounding it up with another plenty of lovely entry. I really enjoyed making this much forgotten dish . What better can be the time of cooking this than for you :)
