Potato Poppy seeds Gravy / Rich Potato Gravy !

Its again time for Blog Hop Wednesday and this is 10th week happening successfully all because of Radhika and other Co-Hoppers who actively participate in this event every alternate Wednesday. And this week I am paired with one of my blog buddy Nisha of Nisha's Kitchen. This time I don't have any confusion to choose the recipe, as I decided to pick any curry from her space. Since daily my toughest job is to decide what's for dinner?? with Chapathis/dosa?? So I tried her Potato in Poppy seed Coconut Gravy. This is bit similar to my mom's kurma recipe and it goes well with both Idly/Dosa n Chapathi/rotis also. For breakfast I served with dosa n the left over curry we had it with chapathi. This is a rich and heavy dish which you can choose for any Potluck Party or get together Party. Now to the recipe...

  2. Onion   1 medium(finely chopped)
  3. Tomato   2 medium (finely chopped)
