Three Spiced Fierce Potatoes

November 18, 2010

Author Notes:

The ingredients are very simple but the combination of hot fierce red chilly with starchy potatoes and tangy tamarind makes it a huge hit! Eaten on its own or with corn or potato chips.

Glad u like it. I love to eat this by itself, but its great with Indian flatbread - roti. But tell you what's even better? Try eating it will baked/fried potato chips - the spicy potatoes and crispness are a great combination <br /><br />P.S. - Since your name says "healthier kitchen" I doubt you will opt for the second :)"<br /><br />Thank you!
