I hated potatoes- right from my childhood! I know what you must be thinking. But that was how I was. My Mamma had tried N number of ways to make me eat some. But no, I won’t unless it is in the form of a Lays Packet. 😛
But now, I understand that it is one of the easiest veggies to cook and with such versatility and taste. 🙂 My adventure with Potatoes continue, especially when I’m too lazy to cook. Today is one of those days, Come on, you can’t blame me, esp. since I’m sick.
This is a classic version of Kerala cuisine and adds a unique flavour if Coconut oil is used.
