  1. Boil the potatoes till they are soft. Peel the skin and mash them with butter and coconut milk.
  2. Make a fine paste of the onion.
  3. Heat oil in a saucepan. Add the cloves, cardamom and cinnamon to the oil. Fry the spices a little and then add the onion, ginger and garlic paste. Add half a teaspoon of salt to it and then fry the paste till the water has dried and the paste looks oily.
  4. Add coriander powder, chilli powder, turmeric powder and cumin powder to the pan and fry a little.
  5. To this fried paste add the mashed potato and coconut milk mixture. Mix the ingredients in the saucepan nicely and cook for sometime. Add water to make the broth light. Add garam masala and cook for few minutes.
