Love for the most humble veggie: Potato!

Since my childhood, I have been in love with this humble yet delicious potato. I used to tell my mom to cook a variety of potato dishes and everyday I got a new potato dish either in my school tiffin or snacks or dinner. I was crazy about potatoes. (Says my mom)😊

She made this spiced potatoes, a simple and my go-to potato recipe. This so reminded me of my childhood!!!
