Badami Alu Curry / Baby Potatoes in Almond Based Curry / Urulaikizhangu Badam Korma

Badami Dhum Aloo:


Baby potatoes / I used regular tho’ cud’nt find them at that time:(
Onion bulb onion grated
Green chili 1 minced
Ginger-garlic paste 1/2 spoon
Turmeric powder 1/4 spoon
Chili powder 1 spoon
Pepper powder 1/2 spoon
Coriander powder 1/2 spoon
Cumin powder 1/2 spoon
Garam masala powder 1/2 spoon.
Tomato 2 pureed
Saffron few strands – powdered
Cardamon 6
Bay leaves 2
Almonds 15 – paste
Ghee for frying
Cilantro leaves few.


In a shallow pan, heat ghee. Throw in the whole spices. Add onion paste, ginger-garlic paste, and all the powdered spices…stir-in peeled potatoes. Mix well, then tomatoes too…fry real good. Once it is aromatic, add enough water…cover and cook. Maybe for at least 20 minutes…until the potatoes are done thoroughly to core.

Further add almond paste, continue cooking. Once oil shows up on the top, and the potatoes are done completely…add the chopped cilantro leaves, remove from heat.

Serve warm to go with your chappathis or rotis.

    How are you? Just been too irregular at the blog and missed many posts.
    I like this dish specially the spicing and the sequence of cooking. I am going to make this.
    Have a nice day

    Dear Abhilash,

    I did slow cooking(dhum)…instead of boiling the potatoes in water…immersed them in this curry and boiled for 20 minutes…so the curry got imbibed beautifully. If it is baby potatoes, it won’t take long. Here, we also get par-boiled potatoes…which will be done in 3-4 minutes.
