Urulaikizhangu Paal Kari / Potato Paal Curry

Potato paal curry is an authentic South Indian recipe and mostly have its place in wedding feasts. This is one of my mom’s dish and its so simple to prepare but tastes really wonderful .  My hubby loves this delicious side with sambar rice . It even goes well with Dosas / Puris / Rotis or with any mixed rice items .  I have made it mild yet you can alter the spiciness up to your taste. Potato is a commonly loved vegetable by almost everyone . And this rich mild texture will make us stick to its taste . Lets see the preparation . Try it and give your views….

Notes :
