Sada Aloo Torkari (Simple potato curry)

Good day to you all!

Being a Bengali, sada aloo’r torkari (potato curry) always takes me back to Sunday mornings at home where we had it with luchi with our family. It is insanely simple and yet so delicious. My mom taught me to cook this dish and I hope you love it. Leave a like and comment if you do like it or make it. Share it with your friends and family.
