Chickpea Potato Dry Sabji or Curry

Chickpea potato dry sabji is a delicious and flavourful curry which pairs perfectly with Roti and can also be used as stuffing for Dosa or Bread. This recipe is quite easy to prepare and tastes heavenly. Prepared this delicious sabji for a recipe swap challenge which is happening among bloggers.

Recipe swap challenge is an interesting event happening among bloggers where couple of bloggers are paired and have to recreate the recipe from their partner's page. I was paired with a lovely blogger Sujata Roy who owns a fabulous page batterupwithsujata.wordpress.com which is filled with loads of amazing recipes. Thanks Sujata for sharing this delicious sabji recipe. Click HERE to check out the original recipe from her page.
