This was a very tasty recipe but unfortunately I didn't use the curry leaf and it needed a bit more zip. I did add 1/2 tsp chili flakes and that fixed it but I think the curry leaf would make it just right. Very easy recipe to make. Lovely idea having the diced potatoes in the reciipe. Served with steamed broccoli on the side & a Jicama salad
