Kaashti Mathura Aloo

I found this recipe from Taranga magazine (kannada weekly). I tried this recipe once and fell in love with the dish. The utter simplicity with which the curry is prepared is mind blowing. 

Kaashti Mathura aloo is a simple everyday curry but with a slight twist. The twist comes from the addition of dry ginger powder. The ginger powder lends it's mild fruity flavour to the potatoes making the curry absolutely delectable. A simple potato roast, stir fried to a golden brown and mildly spiced. Truly, this curry is a lip smacking comfort food.
