Recipe by Nisha

this is something we normally cook at my inlaws place...the masalas quantity may vary...as per the quality and your taste...this is the approx. measurement i use...try and let me know...use the chili mildly if you dont want a really hot curry...preparation time includes boiling the potatoes...

These were absolutely delicious. We served them with a lemon/plum chicken recipe and it was just outstanding. Great flavor, really spicy but certainly not overwhelming!! I used the ketchup, too. Thanks! We'll be doing this a lot.
