Aalu koorma/ Potato kurma

Potato koorma is one of the easy curry that tastes delicious and goes well with any kind of main dish such as rice, paratha or poori. I love having aloo kurma with bagara(Vegetable pulavo). This requires many ingredients but cooks faster. I remember my mother used to make large pieces of potato and cook them. where ever you cook and taste ghar ka khana ghar ka hi hotha hain yaar! we cannot get any where else. So start cooking at home now. You can find most of the home made recipes in my blog. Please bookmark it and do not forget to leave comments on my blog after you prepare this recipe.

Dhokla with the readymade flour available in the market

Dhokla is one of the dish I always wanted to try, this time I bought some ready made dokla flour form the "Patel brothers" one of the Indian grocery store in our near by area. The ingredients on the pack say that it contains besin (Gram flour) and rice flour. I was little confused, about the kind of ingredients that goes into the recipe. Later I did a little research and came up with my own recipe. It worked, dokla came out wonderfully. I never tasted dokla before, but now after making this yummy and healthy Indian flour cakes, I regret for not tasting them before. Form now dokla always stays in the weekly snack menu of our home.

I feel so dumb sometimes, because I bought dokla flour but forgot the fact that I do not have dokla plates. If your case is same like me, give me "high-5"!! No problem you can use the idli plates instead. Problem solved!  Now coming to the recipe.

Dokla flour- 1 cup
Curd/ Yogurt-1/2cup
Turmeric-1/4 t.s
Chilli powder-1/4 t.…
