Aaloo Suva Bhaji (potatoes And Dill Curry)

Dill leaves are quite pungent in flavour but they make an amazing curry when paired with potatoes. I love cooking them with fritters and beans as well. Dill is called Suva in Marathi. My mother often cooked this curry to show us how her hostel days were. She says this was the most common curry served to them with rotis for breakfast and sometimes with an addition of dal for lunch too. She made it a little different for us she claimed so that we could have it unlike her hostel did. But maybe because we were fed this from childhood, I love dill and don't mind having it any day. My hubby was apprehensive of this curry in the beginning but seems like he got used to this too.
