• Remove from heat and gradually stir in the Plain Yogurt. When combined return to low heat, add the potatoes and simmer until potatoes are cooked through.

"Dear Spices of India, I have had two large deliveries from this fabulous company. Firstly, every item is individually wraped. The items are as advertised and fresh produce is really fresh. Both orders were packed better then an order I received from the Queen's grocer ;-) I am very impressed. They take great pride in the way they do business and the excellent products they provide. But please don' take my word for it. Just place your order and you will receive a service second to none. Love the Indian sweets :-)) Thank you Spices of India!"
