Aloo Cholay (Chickpea-Potato Curry)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

From the cookbook, "Hands Off Cooking" by Ann Martin Rolke. "This is my take on a classic Indian mild chickpea-potato curry. I usually serve it with basmati rice and naan, tortillas, or pitas. When Indican cooks call for "chili powder," they usually mean cayenne, which I use here. If you like your food a little less spicy, use a Southwestern chili powder to add some flavor but not much spice. This is great with a dollop of Raita." Posted for ZWT8.
