aloo kurma, potato kurma for poori and chapathi - aloo curry andhra style recipe

Aloo kurma recipe or Potato Kurma for Poori and Chapathi or Aloo Curry Andhra style is a spicy gravy recipe made using coconut paste. This aloo Korma (curry) also goes well with flavourd rice varieties and sometimes with rice too. In Tamil Puri Kurma is called as Puri Kizhangu, in Hindi it is called as Puri Bhaji, alugadda kura or bangaladumpa kurma in telugu. I make puri with Alu Kurma mostly on sundays or while inviting guests as this stands as a rich and heavy duty recipe so filling and also equals a brunch. 

Aloo Kurma - Potato kurma for Poori an Andhar Style curry

In south Indian hotels Aloo Curry gravy and/or Chapathi is most commonly served vegetarian indian food at breakfast, dinner time. 

Poori is another delicious south indian veg recipe especially for breakfast and I have already posted a Kurma recipe made with besan flour which suits better for Pooris. In that recipe "Besan" (gram flour) is the main ingredient whereas in our current recipe "Aloo" (Potatoes) is the main ingredient. Where as my earlier post Potato Masala for Dosas, poori and chapathi is a different recipe, it is the masala curry which is served in andhra hotels for dosas
