Cherry Tomatoes and Baby Potatoes Curry

Let me start celebrating Vegetable of the Week with cherry Tomatoes. I made this main course of cherry tomato along with baby potatoes... It happened that in the vegetable shop here I got Potatoes of very tiny size, so thought to make a curry this way.Here is the way I made it.


Ingredients:


8-10 fresh cherry tomatoes(somehow what I got this time was not of perfect round shape... :)) ),
6-7 baby Potatoes,
1 tsp oil,
1 tsp garlic paste,
1/2 tsp turmeric powder,
1 tsp red chili powder,
1/2 tsp mustard seeds,
1/2 tsp cumin seeds,
1/4 cup Coriander leaves,
salt to taste,
a pinch of asafoetida,
few curry leaves.


Method:

Peel off the potato and wash them, if they are little larger in size then cut them into half. What I used here is of very tiny size , so I used it without cutting(it is so small in size that I rather like to call it cherry potatoes:)) ) . make small hole into them using fork , this will help it cooking well.

Take 1 tsp oil in Kadhai , and fry Potatoeson low flame throughly. Make it sure that it is cooked well, from the middle of it too. when cooked turn off the heat , and keep fried potatoes aside.
Next cut tomatoes into half and keep it aside.

Heat the same oil again, and now start with the real process of making this dish. Add mustard seeds, when they start spluttering , add cumin seeds curry leaves and asafoetida . Now add turmeric powder to it , and immediately add cherry tomatoes, cut into halves.


Let it cook for a while, stir occassionally , do not stir much. It will not take much time to cook. Next add salt, coriander leaves and red chili powder to it, also add fried baby potatoes. Mix them well, and serve real hot , with anything you like. I had it with chapati and Papad :) . Look at my hot Dish of this tangy tomato curry... :D.
