BANGALADUMPA SENAGAPINDI KURA -- PURI (POTATA AND CHICKPEA FLOUR CURRY FOR PURI)

During my childhood Puri is always a Sunday special breakfast. Every Sunday morning, before 9"o"clock amma use to make puri kura for breakfast, and we finish our breakfast in front of the TV watching 'Ramayan'. This curry is the regular combination for puris(some times she makes aloo kurma or sorakaya masala aloso for puris). And now this is my hubby s hot favorite, and he makes better then me. This Friday he is in a mood for cooking and made breakfast for me (off course after he finished cooking I have to clean the kitchen for 1/2 day that s an other point)ok…. here is the recipe…….
