Niramish Aloo Torkari


This is a no onion and no garlic recipe. Usually in many 'puja's we make this kind of dishes. 'Potato curry' goes very well with 'luchi', 'paratha', 'kochuri' etc. But last tuesday I tried a new combo with 'bhatura'. Magically we both loved and enjoyed it very much. I learned this potato curry from my mom. She also follow the same recipe for 'niramish aloo dom' and it tastes always good. Try this new combo and I am sure you will love them too.
