Recipe by gourmand
"Diced potatoes are cooked in a creamy peanut and sesame seed sauce to create a rich and spicy dish. It takes a lot of ingredients and some effort but is definitely worth the try. All the ingredients can be found in an Indian grocery store very easily, and they are not expensive either. Bon appetite! Serve with warm pita bread/naan/wheat tortillas or with Indian fried rice."

This dish has zip! It's quite tasty and not intimidating as it looks to prepare. i was able to find most of the ingredients at my local grocery store, although I didn have to hunt around for the curry leaf. I did slightly reduce the quantity of mint leaves however because I thought half a bunch seemed like it might be a lot and as a matter of personal preference, I prefer a more subtle mint flavor anytime I use mint in cooking.
I pretty much followed the recipe, except that I sauteed some diced chicken breast along with onion, I used way less cilantro and mint (half a bunch is A LOT!), and omitted the curry leaf (didn't have any). This was good and we enjoyed it, but I've made less labor-intensive curries that have been just as good. Also, take care to remove the cinnamon stick, cardamom pods and cloves before serving - biting into them unawares is not pleasant.
I thought this was really good. The flavors are very complex. I didnt think tis was a complicated recipe and the different steps are designed to bring out the full flavor of the spices. I would make this again for sure.
I LOVED this curry! Despite the long ingredient list, it's not that difficult to make as long as you've got a well stocked pantry and pre-roasted peanuts. I omitted the curry leaf as that was the one thing that I didn't have, and it still tasted amazing
