My memories of this dish go way back to my childhood because this is the fry that my mom makes for every festival and I have no idea why
. The other things which are normally made along with this dish are sambar
, ulundhu vadai
and ven pongal
. So this has been on my mind forever, but since I rarely get fresh curry leaves I could not make it.
So this time when I found fresh curry leaves I finally got around to making this. Just the smell of freshly ground ginger and curry leaves made me nostalgic. This is a simple fry which goes well with rice or rotis. Adjust the quantity of ginger based on your need. I love ginger flavor and I add a lot normally. Off to the recipe.

Take the curry leaves and ginger in a blender and grind coarsely.
Boil the potatoes, peel and chop into small pieces.

Tasty potato curry ready. We had it with sambar rice similar to the way my mom makes it
