Potato and Peas Podimass ( potato and peas dry curry )

This recipe is shared to me by my mom and I am proud to share it with you all … She has been making for us for years and it was shared to her by a chef , who cooks for South Indian weddings and each time she used to make it , we would end up fighting as it was never enough for us and today we were totally confused on what to cook for lunch that goes well with rice and sambar plus another task was that we should make something that will be loved by kids and they eat with no fuss . That’s when Seema remembered about this dish and told it’s been long that mom made it for us … That’s when I remembered that I never shared this recipe on my page

We enjoyed our lunch and best was reviving our childhood memories …another thing was kids liking it and asking for more which validated that mom recipes are the best as they are made with the best ingredient called love
