Deliciously quick & easy vegetarian/
Pooris or Puris are unleavened deep fried whole wheat breads. Very popular in India, Pooris are often served during breakfast or as a light snack with side potato dish - dry or curried. Anything deep fried is delicious - so I don't have to say much about the calorie count here. But the curry I am posting about here is a simple easy boiled potato cubes in sn even simpler ginger gravy. This curry goes extremely well with pooris or even chapathis.
Ingredients (Serve 4 as aside dish)
Note: you can also thicken the gravy by adding in corn flour mixed with water. Roughly 1 tbsp with 3 tbsps tap water. Add it in the last stage when you are about to switch off the fire.
