Spicy Potatoes With Tamarind

Spicy potatoes with tamarind. Lip-smacking dry baby potatoes coated with spices. A no onion garlic and easy to make dry curry. You can serve it as a side dish or also as a teatime snack.
A completely gluten free and vegan dish.
I always make it with fluffy puri or fulko luchi.

Everyone loves potatoes in my home and this spicy tangy potato is a all time favorite. You can also enjoy it as a starter.
Not only delicious but potatoes are also a comfort food. Baby potatoes are very common in this season but if you don’t have baby potatoes, you can also use boiled and cubed large potatoes.

Potatoes are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, which make them very healthy.
Studies have linked potatoes and their nutrients to a variety of impressive health benefits, including improved blood sugar control, reduced heart disease risk and higher immunity. They may also improve digestive health and combat signs of aging.

Potatoes are also quite filling, which means they may help you lose weight by curbing hunger pains and cravings.

All in all, potatoes are a great addition to your diet in moderation. They are also naturally gluten-free, which means they can be enjoyed by almost everyone.

Karela Or Bitter Gourd Dopyaza

Karela or bitter gourd dopyaza.
Bitter gourd or karela with lots of onion and tomato. Onion and tomato reduced the bitterness of karela. A dry curry not thick gravy like mutton or chicken dopyaza.

Normally we make dopyaza with chicken or mutton. Or you can make dopyaza with paneer or cottage cheese, bhindi or any vegetable. And dopyaza usually made with thick spicy gravy. But this time I made dopyaza with karela and made it dry. After marinating with salt, rinsed and squeezed karela automatically reduces it’s bitterness. And lots of onion also reduced the bitterness so if you don’t like the bitterness of karela, you will definitely enjoy the taste of this karela dopyaza.
