You all know that potatoes are my favorite..This is another one recipe to add to my recipe list..These are a very dry dish that needs only less oil...But it takes sometime to cook..You have to cook it on a very low flame untill the potatoes turn crispy and all the masala sticks to the potatoes...Hence the name "Chukka", Chukka means Dry...They taste great with plain rasam rice..
Hope you like it and let me know what you think..
