Today's featured recipe is vegetarian Potato Curry which I made to accompany some frozen roti canai my swedish uncle bought during his visit during CNY. I didn't want to waste it cause it has been sitting in the freezer for quite some time. This dish is very rich in flavor and can also be served with rice. I actually wanted to add Jalepeno Peppers in as an experiment cause I think the spicy and sour taste will enhance the dish but unfortunately I couldn't get my hands on any. Anyways here is the recipe I ended up using:
