ABOUT Aloo potala rasa (Aloo parwal gravy) RECIPE

Alu Potala Rasa is the spicy gravy based curry of Odisha, made with potala (pointed gourd) and alu (potatoes).Potala is the Odia name for Parwal or Pointed Gourd and Rasa means gravy.  It is traditionally cooked with mustard oil, the aroma of mustard oil complements the other flavors of this gravy really well . Few added coconut and poppy seeds also in the masala paste. But I prepared it in a much simpler way. Try this flavorful aloo potala rasa and make your family and guests asking for more and more.
