Simple yet Scrumptious.. Potato diversified !

Potatoes , Aloo,  Spuds as they are fondly known by each and everyone are also enjoyed even more ! They are the most versatile and can be prepared instantly in any given form !
Some like them boiled with a dollop of butter or roasted as a part of their Sunday lunch or simply enjoyed in the form of chips or french fries !
The origin of french fries was not in France as an Fyi!
I, personally like them with a bit of jeera ( cumin seeds ) and hing ( asafoetida )  along with moong daal ( yellow lentil curry – will post a recipe soon ) , accompanied by boiled rice or roti . For me, it is the ultimate comfort food and can be eaten any time !
