A simple, no-fuss curry, a regular at home, particularly during, crazy weekday mornings. I need to get boxes packed before 6:45 in the morning. When i plan my day the previous night, the day goes well without any hurry-burry. There are days, where i enter my kitchen blank, totally blank. With no planning, I will run here and there, like a headless chicken.
Those mad days, this potato curry is my rescue. It takes only 15 minutes to make, while the curry is simmering, you can roll the roti's and pack. I have crazy potato lovers at home, so this curry is a big hit always. Try this subzi and let me know how you liked it.
