Potato & Grated Veg Curry

The humble potato can be so verstile and transformed to suit any occassion and anybody. This dish was born out of a need to get my sons to eat more vegetables, because they are vegetarians who do not like vegetables, how is that possible you might ask, the lord himself knows how that is possible and how i have managed to provide interesting, tasty and innovative meals for them thus far. Once this blog goes live, my secreat is out.

    I was also a vegetarian who did not like vegies, or fruit! I lived on chocolate and eggs. Thanks for the rice recipe, I am going to try that 🙂
