Quick Potato - Onion Curry

Making potato curry for Pooris/Chapatis or Masala Dosa one has to plan. Because the potatoes should be cooked before preparing this particular curry. People must be thinking why am I writing this simple recipe which every one knowns. I agree with people who say so. Many must be masters in cooking, but still there are many who are yet to get into lighting the stove and keeping their first steps in cooking. What ever it is always, learning is a process and each and every day we do learn a lot of things. There is no stop for learning. Keep little interest and you will be surely a Master chef.
I have used onions, green chilly and some potatoes to prepare this curry.
