Lahori Aloo Recipe - Spicy Baby Potato Curry Recipe

Baby potatoes are my favourite, i love cooking and eating them because they are so cute. I made this curry few days back and it is a huge success. Hubby loved it so much and we enjoyed it with roti.

This curry is great to be served with roti, naan or even plain rice. I made it little on the gravy side, you can make it completely dry as well, in which case you will be adding less water and dry till it gets thick.

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
