Coconut palms with a side of potatoes

It's such a great feeling when you create something that you end up loving, by accident. I threw in a few ingredients this morning for a potluck lunch and ended up loving one of the dishes so here goes. It's super quick and easy, hence one of my signature dishes from now on.

- 2 large potatoes
- 1 bowl plain yogurt
- 1 pack DEEP frozen coconut chutney
- Oil and regular spices

- Bake, potatoes in microwave, peel and chop
- Heat EVOO in a pan, add potatoes, salt, haldi, red chilli powder and stir for 2 minutes. Set aside.
- Heat some EVOO in a pan, add mustard seeds and jeera. Let splutter then add hing.
- Add whisked yogurt, salt, haldi, dhaniya-jeera powder, red chilli powder, grated ginger and curry leaves and let boil for 5 minutes. Take off the heat.
- Add the entire pack of thawed coconut chutney and mix well.
- Add potatoes to it and mix.
- Garnish with coriander.

I think it is a cheated version of dum aloo. But the coconut definitely gives it a nice kick so please don't try this without the coconut chutney. Serve with roti or poori.

Bon appetite.
