Soak green gram for 5 to 6 hours and pressure cook for 1 whistle (depends upon the cooker;my cooker cooks in 1 whistle). Heat oil in kadai and fry onion,jeera seeds,green chillies,curry leaves and ginger garlic paste. After 5 minutes add potatoes and roast until it turns golden brown. Now add tomatoes and cook till soft. Add all the masala powders and saute until all the masala smell goes. Now add 1 cup water and cooked green gram. Check for seasonings and consistency of gravy . Add coconut milk and more water if needed. Bring to a boil and switch off gas. Garnish with corriander leaves.
