Manju’s Nepalese Aloo ka Jhol (Spicy Potato Curry)

I love tangy curries which have a nice spicy kick to them. This simple Nepalese potato curry has such a wonderful flavoring with the flavors of mustard oil and yogurt.

If you can’t get mustard oil – its okay – though they are available at any Indian Grocery store. This recipe is so great it will work with just about any oil you use.
