This curry taste best with Malabar paratha, Idli, Dosa, Chapati, Rumali Roti or Phulkas.

Now talking curry, it is quite basic one..A simple curry made with onion, tomatoes and spices and the curry is thickened with coconut. You can leave out the coconut if you want, because the aloo will make the curry thick on its own. I hope you will love this as much as we do and let me know if you try it someday..
