Potato Curry is just an substitute for Dal or any other curry, when you normally get bored of having the same old Dal, Kadi or other curries you can actually make this. Potato curry doesn't need any Dal or curd adding to it, just a simple curry which is made of simple ingredients. This recipe is kinda special to me as this was passed on to my by my mom .. she helped me make this via our first ever video chat.
