Puri urulaikazhanga / potato curry with puri from HIM For the His cooking event

          I wouldn’t say that my hubby loves cooking . But he does manage to whip up something interesting to satisfy the hunger pangs especially during the weekends. I would definitely say that he makes the best out of the world potato curry which goes very well with puri(my favourite combo) or sometimes  with the absolutely delicious lemon rice which is my hubby’s favourite combo. He prefers to cook this combo. He says that the hot spicy potato curry he makes is very similar to the one he use to eat at a small eatery in his native. He used to add a small amount of orange food colour too to the curry, but since I dont prefer food colours, he stopped adding it.

         He has made this  several times by now, but somehow I  never managed to take a photo. But Priti’s His cooking event made me take a photo promptly and now this finds a place in my blog. When he made this recently, I also sent some of this food to a friend who stays nearby along with some puris and  a lentil subji made by me. Later , she sent me a message telling that potato curry tasted awesome. I love envy my hubby for the complement he got!!!

       So here comes the popular புரி  உருளைகழங்கு (urulaikazhanga in tamil means potato) curry ( My hubby’s version)from the South Indian kitchen.

Note-This is not the original potato stew made with puris in south India. I will post that sometime soon.
