Spicy Potato Curry - Aloo Curry Recipe - for Chapathi

Potato/aloo spicy curry is my absolute favorite side-dish recipe for chapathi. I learnt it from amma, as usual. She came to know through her neighbor aunt. I personally feel, she makes the world’s best chapathis ever. Her chapathi were sooper soft even it is stored for a day. And this side-dish she makes is the best combo ever, if u really likes the flavors of garlic and cumin seeds.
