Potato Curry with Edamame and Tomatoes

This new variation of potato curry with edamame and tomatoes is something I had at our friend Padmini’s home for dinner recently.

A different take on potato stir fry

I usually make my potato stir fry with peas or cauliflower and sometimes with bell peppers, but this potato curry on the other hand was made with edamame, which I thought was rather unusual, but tasted great. Padmini explained that she adds edamame for added protein in many of her veggie stir fries. What a great idea! I asked Padmini to share her recipe for this stir fry and here it is.
