Bangala Dumpa Mudda Kura or Mashed Potato Curry is a simple potato curry that we make often at home. I love it for its simplicity and its power to comfort.
During our childhood, my brother used to call this Bangala Dumpa Upma Kura, a name he thought of because the ‘popu’ (tadka or tempering) in this curry is virtually the same as that in Rava Upma and the end result also looks a bit like upma too.
I first posted this recipe in July 2012 and am now updating it. How time flies! 🙂
