MICROWAVE MAGIC- TARI WALE ALOO (Homestyle Curried Potatoes)

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!

Potatoes - curried is one of my all time favourite dishes but you know I've never thought to add tamarind to it. Will most definitely do so the next time.

I love the rich colour of your curry.
