Potatoes in Yoghurt

Yummy, is not the word for this dish. It will leave you craving for more.
Here's what you will need
3-4 medimum sized potatoes,boiled,peeled and cubed
1 medium tomato,diced
About 1 Cup ( 8 Fl. oz)Yoghurt,beaten
1 cup water
1 spoon dhaniya powder/roasted cumin powder
1 Spoon garam masala
1 spoon chilli powder
A pinch of turmeric powder/haldi
Salt to taste
Cilantro/Corriander leaves for garnishing
Heat Oil in a skillet/Kadai.Add cumin seed and allow it to pop.
Add, turmeric powder,ginger-garlic paste and sautee for a minute. Add tomatoes. Cook till oil separates(about 5 mins) and keep stirring in between so that the tomato mixure does not burn.
Now,add the other spices - garam masala,chilli powder,dhaniya powder and salt.Mix well.
Next,add yoghurt and let it come to one boil. Finally,add the cubed potatoes,mix well and switch off stove. Garnish with corriander leaves and serve hot.
Enjoy with Rotis/parathas/naans or rice.
Note.:This dish necessarily needs to be eaten hot. If left for sometime then the potatoes absorb some gravy and become very soft.If you wish to have this dish later sometime after it was prepared then add the potato pieces 10 minutes before serving.
