    Thanks again. Great to hear from you.

  4. This recipe turned out very tasty. I have done this several times before, but the spice proportions given in this made it really good. I added some urad dal and chopped garlic before adding the tadka, since that is how my mom makes it.

    If i microwave cut potato pieces, will it still taste the same ?

    • thanks sharmilee for sharing positive feedback and your variation. with microwave the texture and taste of potatoes will change.

      • Thanks. I always cooked potato with a microwave and it didn’t taste as good as when boiled.
        Following your recipe to the tee makes perfect dishes.

        • welcome sharmilee. good to know this.
