Dahi wale Aloo/Baby Potatoes in Yogurt Sauce

My husband comes from a hard core potato loving family and well, I am not a big fan.  I like potato in paratha,  pakoda etc but not in the curries where it's a main ingredient. So I keep experimenting and after trying this dish, now I am in love with potatoes too ;).

I have used baby potatoes (I have soft corner for them, you know? ), but you can very well use regular ones. I used marinade recipe from barbecue and then cooked curry in traditional way. No grinding,  no gravy making and use of everyday spices make this curry score some extra points. You can replace potatoes with paneer.

Serves 2
