Spicy Potato Curry 

Spicy Potato curry is perfect for winter!

Spicy Potato CurryOne of the freshest way to make Indian curry is to prepare the masala and use it right away. That’s what I have done in this post for my Spicy Potato Curry.  It’s a quick and simple recipe that you can try today.

Spicy Potato CurryPotatoes spiced with curry leaves and tamarind make a spicy, salty and yummy recipe that’s perfect for lunch or dinner on a winter day. I caramelize the onions a little to help balance the spices.

Potato curry goes equally well with rice as a side dish or with chapati. Spicy potato curry and raita can be a dynamic and a healthy combination to balance the spiciness. Here are some step by step photos that I managed to take when I was preparing the dish. I am sure you will like this as much as I do 🙂
