Potato and tomato is one of the tasty combinations and it is completely traditional curry. This is completely my recipe and I added ingredients by my own and it was very tasty after preparation that's why I am introducing this curry to everyone. I have followed very easy and simple method to save time. It is very tasty and medium spicy masala curry and it can be used as the side dish of rice for lunch and dinner and also it is an excellent combination with chapati, bread and appam for breakfast. Usually I am using this curry with appam for breakfast because everyone in my family like this curry with appam very much. Its main flavour will be the fennel powder flavour that we have added in this curry so that we can call this curry is a very good masala curry. I think almost everyone like the potato combination curry and also will get very special taste with tomato. It is very good masala curry to those who are interested to have traditional vegetable curry.
