Pudina Aloo

Stir fried potatoes in tangy mint sauce

As Potatoes are everyone's favorite so there are end numbers of recipes to make potato dishes. Sweets, side dishes, stir fries, pudding, snacks we can make everything with potatoes.Children just love potato dishes.

Often people hesitate to eat potatoes as it have good amount of starch in it but if the potatoes are fried, only then they become high in calories so deep frying should be avoided but steaming, boiling, baking, mashed, roasting are good options to consume potatoes.They are fat free, cholesterol and sodium free.A good source of potassium, Vit B, C, Fibre and Iron. Potatoes are good for healthy nervous system and to reduce blood pressure.

I use potatoes to make different types of dishes, one of my favorite dessert is  Potato halwa which can also be used during fasting ,the crispy Potato mint  kachori and the spicy and popular  Mathura ke dubki waley aloo ki subzi which can be served with poori and kachoris.

I love the flavour of mint and often use it to make chutney and raita .This pudina aloo is my favourite recipe which you can serve as a starter, as a snack or can serve as a side dish with any Indian bread. The mint flavour combine very beautifully with potatoes and gives a wonderful flavour to this pudina aloo stirfry.
