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 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 , Potato mint  kachori ,the spicy and  popular Mathura ke dubki waley aloo ki subzi
I love the flavor of mint and often use it to make chutney and raita .This pudina aloo is my favorite recipe which you can serve this as a starter, as a snack or can serve this as a side dish with any Indian bread. The mint flavor combine very beautifully with potatoes and givers a wonderful flavor to this recipe.
