Take a look –
You have to boil potatoes and grate them in advance. Keep them soaked in water in a bowl while you carry on with the rest of the preparation. This trick will prevent potatoes from turning brown. Cook them along with jeera, green chilli and roasted peanuts in ghee. Garnish with flaxseed powder (optional) coriander leaves and serve.
“It's super simple, filling, easy to make, and is a great choice for days when you're fasting. Try this when you don't feel like cooking a lot. It's fuss free,” exclaims Shilpa Shetty on her post.
