Potato and Peas Curry

I had this curry long time back in a friends house.Its a simple and tasty dish.This can be accompanied with Pulav,any rice item or chappati or roti.This  is a quick and also as a second side dish.I changed a little bit and came out really good.

Ingredients :
1.Tomato : 1 large.
2.Potato : 1 medium(Cut into bite size cubes)
3.Peas : a handfull(fresh or frozen)\
4.Turmeric Powder :1/2 tsp
4.Chilli Powder : 2tsp
5.Garam Masala :1 tsp
6.Coconut :1/4 fresh or frozen
7.Green Chilli : 1

For Tampering :
1.Mustard Seeds : 1tsp
2.Cumin Seeds : 2tsp
3.Curry Leaves : 5 or 6
4.Hing : a pinch

If using frozen coconut,bring to room temperature and grind together with green chilli like a paste.
Cut the tomato and potato.

1.In a kadai,add a tsp of oil add the mustard seeds.
2.When it crackles,add cumin,curry leaves and hing.
3.Add the tomato and add the spices, fry till becomes soft.
4.Add the Potato and peas and a cup of water.
5.Close the lid.Check in between.If needed water add a little.
6.When the potatoes are done,add ground coconut mixture and bring to boil.
7.Add salt and Garnish with Cilantro.

I made this watery as we like it that way.
Enjoy with Chappati or Rice.
