Srivalli hosts this event every month, and I definitely will try and participate everytime, I guess that's the only way I can put my micro to some good use!
These curried potatoes are excellent with pooris, and I make them for a leisurely breakfast/brunch on a holiday, and end up eating loads of it as a result, really love the sweet-sour and spicy taste!
