1.Here I have slow cooked the potato curry, but it can also be pressure cooked upto 4 whistles to make the aloo soft and fasten the cooking process.
2.After adding water and coriander leaves, just pressure cook the curry and its done...
3.Adding curry leaves into the curry is totally optional and can be skipped if not required.
4.I have added chopped tomatoes, but one can even add tomato puree instead of tomatoes to make the gravy.
5.A pinch of crushed kasuri methi too can be added at the end to enhance the fragrance and flavor of the curry.
