I have stated about the plenty of available health benefits of pototoes in my previous posts. As you all know like onion, potato is one of the readily available ingredient in all the kitchen. Here is a simple healthy snack Potato Tikka for all age groups. Usually tikkas are more healthier compared to deep fried stuffs as they are toasted on tawa with less oil consumption.
