Recently,I saw a recipe for a similar dish in a magazine,which reminded me of this dish.Went in search for baby potatoes and got real babies,potatoes I mean..they were too baby-ish and I had real trouble peeling off the skins..That was the only effort I made..rest of the cooking got over in a breeze.Took it to a friend’s place for dinner along with phulkas and it got over in no time.
