Potato Fry

Potato fry is a very simple dish that my children absolutely adore. So much  so, that for the almost one year that we stayed in India, they took it for lunch with curd rice. Almost every single day!! Yes, almost every single day! May sound a little weird but that’s how much they loved it and still do.

I have a video tutorial to go with this recipe . You can check it out here.
