ALOO RAJMA CURRY/POTATO KIDNEY BEANS CURRY AND WHEAT FLOUR PURI


We couple don`t like/eat potato.It`s a very old matter..But strangely,Our two kids also avoid aloo..I mean most percent of the kids love aloo more than the elders,In my home it won`t applies...I was surprised for the first time when MAHADEV avoided Aloo..Particularly for BLOG some times I fill my fridge with few potatoes too...If potato is a dislike vegetable oppositely rajma is often food in my home.After pressure cooking Rajma I use to cook 2different recipes every time..In the same way,few days when I boiled rajma remained some.To use those I cooked along with aloo and prepared this curry.For a combination I deep fried some wheat flour rotis and really this both tasted too delicious...
