Potato and Onion curry

Potato is the most staple vegetable all over  the world and South India is not an exception.Potato curry is a special dish and favourite of most of the people especially children.Potato curry is part of any vegetarian festive menu in Tamilnadu.
In my family this potato and onion curry is made on  all Sundays along with Onion Sambar and Avial.It used to be our Sunday Feast.I love this menu.I make this potato and onion curry atleast once a week mostly with sambar if not with Avial.Ths curry is so yummy that it can be wrapped in a chapathi for lunchbox or travel.It can be used as a filling for sandwich for a spicy potato grilled sandwich.
