Dahi aloo ki sabzi / Potatoes in curd gravy

What do you do when your curd turns sour, or you have too much of it left? I make kadhi if I am serving rice, or I make dahi -aloo ki sabzi which I can serve with chappatis.

4 medium-size Potatoes (boiled, mashed roughly) 
1 tsp Turmeric Powder, coriander powder and garam masala/ all spice
1 tsp panch phoran / cumin for tempering
1 cup sour Curd beaten
1/2 cup Water 
Salt to taste 
1/2 tbsp Oil
1 onion chopped
1 tomato chopped
1 tsp ginger garlic
a pinch of asafoetida

Heat the oil in a pan and add panch phoran and asafoetida. Let the seeds splutter. Add onions and fry till lightly browned. Add ginger garlic paste, tomatoes, salt and spices.  Cook for a few minutes. Now add mashed potatoes and sauté for about 3-5 minutes. When the potatoes turn a bit crispy, add beaten curd mixed with water.
Simmer for about 2-3 minutes. Do not heat the curd mixture too long, else the curd splits!!

Dahi aloo ki sabzi is ready to be served!!
