I am giving this recipe name as “Jhatpat OR quick Potato curry” because it will be ready in just 10 min.I actually made this recipe today.I was quite confused what to make and hubby wants to eat something light and homely food.After thinking and discussing about 3 hours with NO-RESULT, I decided to make this Mommy’s special Jhatpat Aloo recipe with Bhakhri.

Subji OR Curry is called “SHAK” in our gujarati language.Bhakhari and Shak is the most staple and comfy food in our home as we make it often.In my home ,I prepare Bhakhari and shak sometimes 4 days in week. I will upload gujarati bhakhri recipe very soon.

I am not adding garlic in this recipe.I can say, It is perfect recipe for beginners. I know many people doesn’t like Potatoes at all because of its plain taste. If you are Potato lover like me then you will definitely like this recipe.
