Spicy Indian Baby Potato Curry

Sometimes, these small baby potatoes can really do wonders. I made this today and it came out really tasty and disappeared in no time. The aroma of the spices along with the tomato- onion sauce, with the crisp potatoes, really awesome! Baby potatoes are mostly available during the winter season and the most versatile vegetable known. This is a very simple potato recipe in a tomato base with spices and kasoori methi/fenugreek leaves. (Don't forget to comment or subscribe! Njoy!)
