Green Peas & Potato Curry – So flavourful!

Green Peas & Potato Curry : It’s a rich and an aromatic dish. I have used white poppy seeds(khus khus/kasa kasa) to get the authentic taste. Poppy seeds has been traditionally used in lot of non-veg curries in South India. My mom prepares special spice mix including the poppy seeds that could be added for all non-veg preparation as it brings out the distinct flavour, taste and thickness to the curry.

This curry tastes good with chappati, dosas and idli. It’s indeed a veg delight and a must try for the viewers
