Potato curry itself has it’s own attraction but during some festival time we can’t add onion and garlic in our curry and have to make it in pure vegetarian way. So I started to find out how to create awesome delicious curry without using onion and garlic. Jain style seems the best as they are pure vegetarian and don’t use onion and garlic in their food. I searched a lot and go through many recipe before making this dish. Inspired from all those dishes I try to create a new delicious potato curry without using onion and garlic and it turned out too good and now in my family fav list. I am sure you all will love Jain style potato curry too.
