Urulaikizhangu Kuruma - Potato Kuruma

#Kuruma [ or #Kurma ] is a very good side dish for chappathy, poori, biriyani, and pulav.
This kuruma is white in color mainly because of coconut masala with green chillies.
Only green chillies are used to give spicy taste to the kuruma.
To make it more spicy add enough chillies while grinding masala itself.
The aroma of cumin seeds and green chilly give it a distinct taste.
