• Once sizzling, add Asafoetida, Turmeric and Kashmiri Chilli / Cashew Paste and stir well.

• Remove from heat and gradually stir in the Plain Yogurt. When combined return to low heat, add the potatoes and simmer until potatoes are cooked through.

• Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly, so the potatoes soak up the sauce. Sprinkle with fresh Coriander and serve with hot Roti.
Testimonial:

"Dear Spices of India, I placed an order on Thursday, a slight hiccup when I didn't complete the transaction but an email from you soon sorted that out so the order was placed on Friday and was delivered to my works on Monday. Fantastic. Really pleased with the aluminium karahi and even more pleased to see a free jar of seasoning. Thanks, will definitely order again. In fact I've given my Dad a list of things to get me for christmas. Here's hoping!"
