Lol @ Sujata, you are Hilarious :D
@ Minal Thank You so much and I am so glad you tried it and love the end product, please keep writing. YOur feedback and suggestions are more than welcome.
@ Khyati, I love these potato, since they don't require any last minute attention. At times I treat myself with simple boiled potato chunks tossed in butter, parsley or finely grated lemon rind-They taste heavenly! As a savory snack I, toss them in jeera powder, haldi and mirchi powder and garnish them with chopped cilantro and chaat masala!
