After long time i made this Chickpeas-potatoes curry or kurma.It goes great with pooris,rotis or even with pulao rices.We had it with rotis,this time i added almond-cashew paste in the last and it tasted very delicious..here goes the recipe..

Microwave them with required water for 10min.
Mean while remove the peas from the tin and wash under running cold water and keep aside.

Then goes chopped onions along with little bit salt and fry till it changes colour.Then add ginger garlic paste along with chopped tomatoes,turmeric and cook till raw smell goes out.
