Potato : Our Family Vegetable
Potatoes in any form is always a hit at home. In fact, I jocularly say Potato is our family vegetable. When there is a family song, family food, why can’t there be a family vegetable? Any day, you walk-in to my in-laws house, there is a good chance of finding potato subzi or a potato podimas in the lunch menu.
Both my kids are not alien to this habit of loving potatoes. Infact, my elder one is happy to have potato curry everyday in his lunch. Our family favorite is this potato capsicum curry, a dry subzi my husband makes. Perfectly cooked potatoes tossed with thinly sliced capsicums and flavored with simple homemade sambar powder.
The Tikki Story
Aloo tikki or Potato patty was my elder ones favorite when he was in his primary school years. He developed a sudden liking to the McAloo tikki served at McDonalds. One day, he wanted to make it for his school lunch box and asked whether I can create the same patty and the same taste at home. I said, I will try and made these and gave it along homemade white bread. It was such a big hit, and it made several appearances in his lunchbox that year. Now his younger brother has taken a liking for the same dish.
