Bengali has a (good or bad) reputation to add potato in almost every curry. :)..Why shouldn’t we add? It just tastes awesome guys. You should try this. It also increases the proportion.
I have been blogging and vlogging (video blogging) for almost 3 1/2 years. Being a Bong, I have not done fare with you (my readers) by not sharing our specialty. So here it goes.
It is specially prepared with mutton on every Sunday in Bengali houses. But mutton is a rare affair in my house. So I prepare the curry with chicken and as I said you can prepare with fish, egg or veggies too.
