  1. I didn't know that Chinese potatoes exist. Certainly it looks impressive, the style of cooking and the texture of the potatoes. Nice simple dish, nothing over the top but delicious with the right flavors.

  2. Aha, now that is a new vegetable, I have never ever heard of!!
    But the stir fry looks yum and very inviting. I can have this with curd rice!!

  3. ooh…u are soo tempting me, Beena. have not had it in ages…madiyaaundakaan.. the cleaning part 🙁

  4. I love potatoes. We usually make something similar to go with khichdi but next time will add curry leaves. The flavour of curry leaves will make a whole load of difference.
