Ah!!! the popular Potatoes!!!!  They add a distinct flavour, texture and variation to the dishes!!
It is said that there are nearly 4000 varieties of potatoes in various colours, shapes and sizes.

High in potassium, Vitamin B6 and is good for the heart –

    This is a perfect and easy to cook receipe. This is a very popular dish and every cook has his or her own receipe for a typical potato curry. I tried this one and found this was a very simple and easy-to-cook receipe. The use of microwave in Indian cooking makes the process easy and quick. Will indeed try out some more receipes soon.
