There are types of food that bring joy and comfort and with this dish, you will feel the warmth. Potatoes play a big part in Indian cuisine and every household has their way of making them.
Sometimes when you have a big family or you haven’t enough vegetables, potatoes are added to bulk the dish out a little, so it goes round enough.
When cooked with vegetables, potatoes give a starchy combination to the dish and they work really well with any veg. It is a good balance of taste and flavours.
We call a vegetable dish as sabzi, here in the UK you all know it vegetable curry.
