Potato Badun

Badun is a sinhalese word for deviled, which in culinary term refers to food seasoned heavily.My Family loves dishes made with potato.As this dish is very spicy,it is not in my children's favourite recipe list.However,sometimes ,I adjust the spices according to their taste buds.I use less or mild spices.
