Potato Kurma is an easy and delicious side dish. I have given this recipe in Aval Vikatan supplement in August 2014. This can be had with poori, chapathi and also for biryanis too. I want to post all the recipes i have posted in the supplement books so far, here. Since many of my non tamil readers are asking me to post them, i will be posting them here one by one every week. This restaurant syle potato kurma recipe is a must one to try, also potatoes can be replaced by mixed vegetables too.
