Aloo Tamatar Subji

Potato is a favourite vegetable for most of us and may be some of us resist it for mythical health reasons. Potatoes are best to be had with skin on by baking or steaming or grilling while only deep frying them or spicing them up heavily can turn them terrible (for health). However, this tangy-flowy-dissolving subji with hot fulkas is just an irresistible combination.
