ABOUT Masala Baby Potatoes RECIPE

Anything to do with potatoes, are comfort food for me and seriously, who does not like potatoes!! They go with everything from eggs to meat to soups and you can have them any way you want – mashed, roasted, fried, or stewed. I know, they are a little carb rich, but then, we really don’t have to finish off a full bag of potatoes on one go, right? I did some research to know more about potatoes and this is what I found – they are packed with various nutrients such as carotenoids, flavonoids and caffeic acid which help prevent cell damage, help in digestion, heart health, blood pressure and even cancer prevention. Woo Hoo! I cook with potatoes a lot and we eat potatoes almost everyday for dinner. No kidding!. This is one recipe, which is beyond easy and simple to make. It doesn’t need any onion, ginger or garlic nor any fancy creamy stuff. Sometimes, I serve them with roti or steamed rice and sometimes we just eat as an appetizer.
