MASHED POTATO CURRY
Often its simple food that wins hearts. Not expansive menus or dishes that cant be pronounced without rolling your tongue in so many million ways. This potato onion curry is testimony to that. While we are not great potato fans at home here, i make this curry just to cheer us up on a cold lousy day or when i really dont have the mood to whip up a huge spread for dinner.
