  1. The taste of the Curry is in choosing the potatoes. Old, sprouted Potatoes are starchy and sweet and so the Curry does not taste all that good.

  2. The Potatoes should not be cut into pieces but should be boiled and mashed.

  3. To make the Curry thick, you should totally mash some of the boiled pieces and add to the Curry.

  4. Potato Curry tastes better when it is cooked on a slow fire and the Potatoes absorb the spices nicely.

Some more tips to get the Street Food taste:

  1. The Curry gets a nice, vibrant colour like Street food if you add more Oil.

  2. Add the spices one after the other quickly to the boiling Oil so that their flavours are brought out in the hot Oil.

  3. Street Food means the recipe must have Ginger Garlic Paste. But those who do not like the flavour can skip it.
