Potatoes are considered to be a comfort food when roasted, baked or mashed. It is not a seasonal veg as it is harvested somewhere every month for a year. Potatoes are very popular food source but most of us eat it in the form of french fries or crispy chips. But when it is roasted, baked or mashed, it becomes a fine healthy food for both adults and kids.
Baby potatoes are a variety of potato family which is rich in various health benefits and is visually appealing when added to the curry.
