Easy Recipes: How To Make South Indian-Style Aloo Kurma
To begin with, take dry red chillies, coriander seeds, poppy seeds, and cumin seeds. Preheat a frying pan. Add the spices and lightly roast them on low heat until fragrant, stirring frequently. It is not necessary to brown them. Allow these spices to cool before using them.
Next, grind these spices to a coarse mixture. Your kurma masala is ready. Now, heat 2 tbsp oil in a pressure cooker, add cinnamon, 2 cloves, and 2 green cardamoms. Cook over low heat until the spices are fragrant. After it, add 1/2 cup of thinly-sliced onions. Sauté the onions until they begin to turn golden.
