Batata Bhujne | Potato & Tomato curry

0.0 out of 5 stars (based on 0 reviews)

Batatya cha Bhujna which is nothing but Potato & Tomato curry hails from the Pathare Prabhu community of Mumbai. The specialty of this curry is it doesn’t require any tadka & requires only few ingredients which we have seen in this series.

I like to define this dish as Indian cooking that goes easy on the pocket

A simple dal rice & a potato sabzi makes a very homely and satisfying meal. We have already seen how to make dal rice, now let’s make a sabzi and finish off the meal.

    Hi I am Akshay

    I am a Software Engineer by profession but a foodie at heart. I am in love with food! I enjoy the explosion of flavours on my taste buds and am always ready to try different cuisines. One of my fondest memories as a child is sitting on the kitchen counter, watching my mother cook. But as I travelled for work, I missed the tastes of home.
    And that was the birth of Simply Simple Cooking YouTube Channel & later this blog.
