You all know my love for potatoes. I can never stop creating new recipes using potatoes. This is one of the dish which i came up with and it was a hit at home. I made this for my sister and she loved it with rasam made using my perimma’s rasam powder.
This potato dish has tons of garlic flavour which i absolutely love.. And it is a spicy dish. I made this using baby potatoes, but you can use normal potatoes as well. Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turned out for you.
