Top Review by Sandi From CA

Oh, how I love this dish at our local Indian lunch counter! The menu's constantly changing, so when I see it there, I get VERY excited. This recipe didn't taste like that version, but I'm always on the lookout for more potato recipes, so it wasn't exactly a negative that we got to enjoy this. :o) I used fresh methi (fenugreek leaves) and skipped the chilis (hot!), but otherwise made as indicated. Careful not to cook the potatoes too much or they will fall apart. Thank you for sharing, roja khan!
