The word "scramble" makes you think of eggs, but there are none in this! All over India, there are versions of this dish. With this amount of chilli powder, it is supposed to be very spicy! If you don't like a lot of heat or spice, start with a small amount and add more at the end. I got this from an Indian recipe website. Enjoy!
- 3 medium potatoes, peeled and cut in to small pieces (soak in water)
