Hope you all friends had a safe and great Diwali! Here's some of the Diwali day photos to share with you.I made Chakli, Sev/Ompodi,Thenkuzhal( its a kind of murukku), and in sweets-Badhusha and Gulab Jamoons...
And now, coming to the post ! This curry is different from the usual potato curry we make and this one uses freshly ground masala.My mother-in-law learnt this recipe from a Cookery show and she makes this very often.This is very flavorful one...Try this you will surely like!
