This is one of the favorite recipes of my mother and my husband. It is nice combination with paratha or Indian puree. It's very tasty and you'll keep licking your finger I swear.

I really liked this dish. I wasn't sure if the cooking method would work, browning the potatoes after they are cooked, but it did! I skipped the curds, halved the salt, and used 1 tablespoon of oil instead of all the butter. It would be helpful to have the ingredients in order and to include cilantro among the ingredients. This served 2 for us. Thanks for the yummy recipe!
