Indian Spicy Potato Curry

Potatoes are such a versatile vegetable that works well with every kind of food and cuisine. We all love our potatoes, don’t we?

We love to pair them with puris or chapatis and without any addition of garlic or onion, this tastes delicious. This recipe is a true reflection that only spices can add so much flavour to the dish. Whole spices are roasted and freshly ground to make this potato curry and these aromatics add a beautiful flavour to this dish.

This potato curry is traditional to the western region of India and a staple in regular home-made food. Usually in Rajasthan, the food is fiery, but you can reduce the use of chillies as per preference and taste buds. I definitely do not recommend altering the whole spices for this recipe. The combination and quantity makes it necessary to make this curry delicious.

We love to relish this with aamras-puri because they are a perfect combo together. Don’t believe me yet? Do try and let me know.
