You all know that I love potatoes..And you can see my love in this blog..Yes I have quite a few recipe for potato here..Go and browse my Recipe Index for all recipes…
This is a kind of potato roast which requires no fancy spices..This recipe is very straight forward..You only need basic two spices and you are done..The one thing about this dish is it requires quite a bit of time to roast..
You should cook it in low flame for a long time so that the potatoes gets nice and crisp..Alternatively you could even use a oven to roast the potatoes,But I find stove top works fine..
