Aloo Patol er Dalna or Potato Parwal Curry

Among all the vegetables one of my favorite is Patol or Parwal. Anything with Patol makes my day. But the problem is that my husband dosen’t like it at all except Patol er Dorma (my patol er dorma recipe is here . So no other option some time I cook for myself also. He used to have the potato from this Aloo Patol er Dalna or Potato Parwal Curry. But the probelem is that in the Indian grocery store they have very limited stock of Patol or Parwal, so everytime I am not so lucky.

This one I cooked like my Maa-in-law used to cook. She is dosen't add that much of spice because of my father in-laws health but I just made it little spicy. This is one the popular Bong delicacy.
