Urulai Kizhangu kara curry recipe | Potato kara curry

Urulai Kizhangu kara curry | Potato kara curry, is a spicy potato roast, traditionally served in Tamil brahmin weddings. Whenever we fix on the menu for the wedding, urulai kara curry is the common one which we add up in the menu along with other yummy traditional dishes. Though we make potato curry at home, this one is quite unique and will be very tasty too. Few weeks back i tried this Urulai kara curry from bhojana recipes and posted in Jeyashri's kitchen Instagram story too. Since it is a no onion no garlic potato curry i thought i will make it again and post today. I tried this yesterday for my guests along with bisi bela bath. It goes well with curd rice and rasam sadam too.
