Came out ok even though I forgot to peel the potatoes. Cherry tomatoes can be made 1 cup. I added half the salt while cooking. Other half add in step 1/2/3. Add carom seeds after frying the potatoes for couple of minutes to prevent them from over frying.

Unusual combination of cherry tomatoes and baby potatoes, amchur gives that tangy flavour. The creamy gravy formed from curd compliments the crispy potatoes.
