ABOUT Kung pao potatoes RECIPE

During one period, the Kung Pao was a man from Sichuan province whose favorite dish was spicy diced chicken with peanuts. So this dish was named after him. As we are vegetarians couldn't enjoy the chicken version so why worry when we have the humble Potato for rescue and here it is the Sanjeev Kapoor's version of the same!!
