Two Potato Curry
This flavourful Indian style curry is a delicious cold weather treat. The curry is not spicy, unless you want it to be! Serve it over brown basmati rice or alone for a curry stew. If you don't have all the spices to create your own curry, use a pre-made curry powder, although homemade definitely tastes better. Serve your curry with toasted naan bread, whole wheat pita or make your own gluten-free flat bread like I did. I'll post the flat bread recipe tomorrow.
