Tanya is the host of 5 Things
She asks us what are our 5 Favorite ways to eat potatoes;
• French fries;
Though they have nothing to do with France or the French, I think they are the most recognizable way of eating potatoes all world over! Serve them with Mayo, garlic Mayo, ketchup or chantey.
• Baked potatoes;
I love baked potatoes with sour cream. They can be done in the microwave quickly but the real taste comes when you bake them in the oven on low heat. It takes way longer but is definitely worth it.
• Mashed potatoes;
Boiled either with skin or without skin, mashed with butter, cream, and/ or milk. They make the best accompaniment to most meat dishes.
• Samosas with potatoes;
Though samosas are a savory dish of our part of the world, they have become popular with the rise in the popularity of Indian cuisine. I love the ones which are stuffed full of potatoes and peas.
• Parathas filled with boiled potatoes
Most people wouldn’t have heard of this one. It is made by rolling out two thin layers of whole-wheat flour dough and putting a layer of well seasoned boiled potatoes in between. This is rolled out thin and cooked on a pan with ghee. Nothing can match up to this dish in yumminess for potato lovers.
