Cajun style Potatoes

Quick and Delicious Crispy Potatoes

I love Potatoes...seriously. Fries, chips ...who does not like them?. Here is another style of potatoes with a Indian twist. They are crisp and very flavourful.Can be made in 10-15 minutes. Ideal for parties or even for a quick snack.

  4. Hi humaira...u got a very nice blog..liked many of your recipes...will surely try them

  5. assk humaira
    nice recipe. so quick to make, would be perfect for gits made dosas. i usually make onion/potato curry for dosas which takes a longer time to cook.
    so i am going to try ur recipe soon

  6. Rizruby, Thanks for commenting. Yes you can use these as a quick substitute for dosa aalu but may I suggest you add a little water (1/2 cup) and let it cook covered. This will become a little mushy and will taste good with dosas

  7. Thanks for the entry, looks good

  8. awesome food I wish I could have now... I rate this food 100/10


So...what were you saying??
