Ingredients for Tilwale Aloo
Who doesn’t like potatoes?? These are life savers when there are no veggies available and are budget friendly too. Though many people think these are not the healthy option but when potatoes are prepared in a healthy way these make a delicious filling meal. Potatoes are low in fat and sodium and are a rich source of fibers, antioxidants and carbohydrates.
A humble potato dish along with Dal Rice or Dal chapati serves a comforting filling meal. Kid’s love dishes with potatoes and moms can serve it without any guilt as it made in very less oil and has crunchy peanuts and nutty sesame seeds which are loaded with health friendly ingredients.
