This recipe brings back childhood memories when we used to travel by train during summer holidays. This yummy curry was served with pooris in the railway stations. It is a very simple potato curry with less spices and can be prepared in a jiffy when you have unexpected guests. Potato is one vegetable which is versatiile, loved by all and available in the kitchen always.
