Urulaikilangu Kurma/Potato Kurma/Aloo Kurma


Another session of Blogging Marathon has started for this week I have chosen pressure cooker recipe as theme.
Pressure cooker is one such boon to every women as it saves the time and food can be cooked in no time.Not only saves time it also saves the fuel too,I can't imagine my cooking without a pressure cooker.
Today's recipe is flavorful and slightly spicy kurma with the potatoes,a perfect accompaniment for roti,parotta and ghee rice.This recipe can be made in open method also but making in pressure cooker makes it easier without compromising the taste.Her goes the recipe...................

Add around 11/2- 2 cups of water,cover it with lid and cook it for a whistle in a medium flame.

Potato Kurma is ready.



Enjoy.............................................................


  • The amount of chillies given is for slightly spicier version so adjust accordingly.
  • Do not cook it more than for a whistle otherwise the potatoes get over cooked.
  • Here I used the store bought coconut milk,if you are making it at home for 1/2 cup of coconut add 1/4 cup of water and grind it to a fine paste and strain it.

This recipe is off to Tamizhar Samayal Tuesday and Dish it out -Tomato and Garlic Event.
