Niramish Alur Dom - No Onion No Garlic

Like I said in my previous post, Koraishutir Kochuri and Alur Dom are match made in heaven. I have an Alur Dom recipe in my archive but this one right here is a Niramish version meaning sans Onion and Garlic. You wouldn't know the absence of Onion or garlic and relish this delicacy during festivals.

Baby potatoes - 1/2 kg (you could use normal potatoes and cut them them cubes)
Ginger paste - 11/2 tbsp
Tomatoes - 2 large or 3 medium, finely chopped or ground
Red chilli powder - as per spice tolerance
Salt to taste
Tumeric powder - 1 tsp
Cumin powder - 1 tsp
Corinader powder - 1 tsp
Green peas - 1 handful (optional)
Coriander leaves - a handful
Oil - 3 tbsp
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Red chillies - 2 (broken into 2-3 pieces each)
Bay leaves - 1 or 2
Sugar - 1 tsp

1. Boil the potatoes and peel them
2. Heat oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds. Once they splutter add red chillies and bay leaves.
3. Add ginger paste and fry till raw smell goes away.
4. Add tomatoes and saute till they turn mushy and oil is separated.
5. Add potatoes, green peas, all the masala powders, salt, sugar and combine.
6. Add 2 cups of water and boil till you get desired consistency.
7. Garnish with coriander leaves.
