Growing up, I remember my mom making a delicious Indian Potato Curry for special occasions. It was always so flavorful and comforting. To this day, my family still loves this dish and requests it whenever we get together.
When I was learning to cook, I had the privilege of learning how to make my mom’s Indian Potato Curry from her. She taught me her secret tips and tricks for making the perfect curry. We would spend hours in the kitchen cooking, talking and laughing.
Now that I’m older, I enjoy making this curry for my family and friends. I’m sure you will love it as much as we do. This Easy Indian Potato Curry is perfect for busy weeknights. It’s easy to make and full of flavor. You won’t be able to resist the delicious aroma in your kitchen while it’s cooking!
