An age old accompaniment for any of our Indian dishes is the classic Potato fry. Potatoes can be prepared in many ways which we are accustomed to. Why not experiment with something new? This recipe is a true lip smacker that can be used as a tastier substitute to potatoes. This is a textural delicacy as well as a accompaniment that can go with both South and North Indian dishes.
