Rajasthani Jhol | Potato Peas Liquid Curry

My sweet neighbour Mrs. V taught me how to do this. I keep on pestering her for quick recipes, things that don’t take up much of my time. I go on asking her for stuff that can be completed in few minutes. That’s when she told me about this recipe….she knows potato is my favourite vegetable. This dish is tasty and best enjoyed with chapathis.
