Please post your feedback after trying.
Potato fry looks very interesting. Will surely try.
Is it OK to add few garlic pieces to the recipe. Will it affect the taste. I am planning to stuff inside the chapathi like Kathi rolls for long trip.thanks arthy
If you like you can add garlic flakes. The taste will be slightly different with garlic flavour.
