Potato Poori Curry

Poori was my most favorite breakfast as a kid.My mom used to make about 50 pooris in a day and me and my brother used to compete as to how many pooris we can eat, we ate upto 10 in the morning and the leftovers in the evening.The most common accompaniment to poori was this potato curry or Chole Curry or simply sugar 🙂 .Although we dont eat poori a lot these days, the post about karwachauth and people having pooris reminded me and left me craving for this dish and so the recipe.
