Side Dish – Potato Curry/Bhaji

I have never encountered anyone who doesn’t like Potato curry till date. We all love it, don’t we ? There are a number of variations in which this curry is made – one with just potato, one with potato and onion , what not. Though the picture tagged along this post looks like the curry/bhaji that’s often served with poori, this dish slightly different – a bit more spicy and tangy. Courtesy – a dash of extra spices. I was introduced to this dish by my friend Kalyani, who is absolutely a wonderful cook ! I get to learn a lot from her.This is a delicious side for curd rice, sambar/rasam. One can have this with rotis as well !
