Baby potato~cherry tomato~green peas gravy

This is my contribution to Creative Pooja's veggie of the week - tomato. Infact, I got the idea for this recipe from Pooja's baby potato-cherry tomato curry. So, I made a gravy and added the baby potatoes and cherry tomatoes along with green peas for more texture. The result: a delicious lightly-spiced gravy with the flavor of cherry tomatoes bursting in your mouth.

Ingredients8 or 10 baby potatoes
1/2 pound cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup green peas
1 tsp tomato paste
1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp red chilli powder
A pinch of turmeric powder
2 tsp kasoori methi (roasted and powdered)
1 tbps sour cream
Salt to taste
Fresh cilantro for garnish
Oil as needed

Make a paste1 medium onion - chopped and sautéed in oil
1 tsp poppy seeds
1 tsp sesame seeds
3 cloves
1 small piece cinnamon

1. Boil the potatoes in a big pot of water. Cool and peel the skin and prick with a fork all over. You can also microwave the potatoes.
2. Pour 2 tsps of oil in a pan and sauté the potatoes until brown on all sides. Set aside on a paper towel.

6. Then add the sour cream and kasoori methi and mix well.
7. Add the peas, tomatoes and potatoes along with salt and mix till they are well blended in the gravy.
8. Garnish with cilantro.
