Despite the 'couch potato' allusion, potatoes are actually quite healthy if not deep-fried. If boiled or cooked without oil like in this recipe, the goodness of potatoes is really tapped.

A real delicacy, this recipe lets you take advantage of the rich potassium content in potato, without worrying about an increasing waistline as the side effect!

Had with a bowl of hot cooked rice , chapatis or parathas it gives you the satisfaction of having had a wholesome and tasty meal.
