I was browsing through my recipes and I realised that I haven’t added many potato recipes that I often prepare. So, I thought I would start with the basics and most commonly prepared recipes in every Indian household. The first one that came to mind was Aloo Mutter (Potato and Green peas curry). I am sure everyone of us love this recipe and also this is a very easy and quick side dish for roti or plain rice.
