Potato Kurma Recipe | Easy Kurma for Chappati | Chappati side dish recipe

Potato Kurma is a versatile curry and can be made with any of your favorites ~ paneer/tofu, mix vegetables, hard boiled eggs. Its a great side to Veg Pulao, poori or chappthi/roti. I have used basic spices and not loaded it with too much... sometimes simplicity is best :-). This is the curry we had with our Veg Pulao.
