Nothing beats some fresh refreshing snacks from your kitchen. Especially the ones that are brought from Kolkata, WB. okay, let’s be more clear, Baby Potatoes are almost easily available in any city market but in my village where I stay, they are literally farm produced in tons so I get them for free and nothing beats the taste of a home-grown vegetable, does it? So I begged my mom to carry some fresh home-grown baby potatoes in her luggage this time so I could make this amazing quick snack-recipe & enjoy them in Mumbai and that’s what we did!
Obviously you can make this snack recipe with any normal size potatoes chopped into medium pieces but as I said earlier baby potatoes taste way more better & delicious with this recipe & I really really wanted to try this simple yet quick Aloo Chatpate snack recipe with this cute little baby potatoes.
