Potato Treat

Who doesn’t like potatoes!!! Here’s a recipe to satiate the craving carbs while balancing it with a healthy twist. Even though the name says ‘hara batata’, there’s no spinach in this. To balance health with visual appeal, I have added sweet potatoes for its nutritional benefits along with eye-catchingly attractive baby potatoes. These are hard-boiled and coated with lots and lots of garlic, Kashmiri chillies and fresh coriander and sautéed rapidly for the flavours to sink in. This versatile potato dish can be served as a starter or even as a main sabzi with piping hot parathas!
