This is an easy curry recipe. You can eat it with rice, or you can use it as a samosa stuffing. After you make it, let the flavors marry a bit before eating.

I made this last night and it really rocked! I had some baby yukon golds to use up and it turned out wonderfully! Now, I don't have to spend so much money at my local Indian restaurant to get this! I turned down the heat by 1/2, but other than that, I followed the recipe as is...It was wonderful! My husband also enjoyed it! Thanks for sharing!
