Indian dishes with potatoes

8 Quick and Easy Potato Side Dishes made the Indian Way

Potato is a versatile vegetable. It is easy to store, and a bag of potatoes is almost always available in my home. I love combining potatoes with other vegetables and make varieties of dishes. In India, we use potatoes in many dishes; we add them to our Biryanis, we stuff them in paranthas, we coat them in batter and make fritters, and of course, we make dry and gravy dishes with them.

Today’s post is about 8 side dishes with potatoes made the Indian way. These are called ‘Sukhi Sabzi’ in Hindi. Basically, these dishes have no gravy and are perfect when paired with, say, Rice & Dal OR Roti/chapati & Dal etc.
