Hey Aarthi,
This is becoming a habit now-writing to you everyday. I tried out this potato recipe though with regular potatoes (did not have baby potatoes) and they came out awesome..Had it with rice and your-"rasam, my way".....;-). At night, had some leftover potatoes and so made use of them for sandwiches with some mint chutney too....Totaly a yummy yummy day!!!..Thanks again dear....
