  12. Delicious looking curry, I too grind potatoes, peas, channa, and other veggies when I am making a curry just to avoid using corn flour or Rice flour or using loads of coconut to thicken the gravy.., actually I was planning to make chappatis today, you can send me this parcel :).. lovely clicks too
