Kanda Batata Rassa

This is one easy, comfort curry that leaves me wanting for more. Goes great with chapatis or can be eaten by mixing with plain rice. J  The tanginess of tomatoes with the potatoes makes a great combo.Made without onions and garlic, this can be made on fast days too.

Do try this and share your thoughts.
