Is there a soul out there who dislikes potatoes? We think not! The most versatile veggie (tuber to be more accurate) is loved and consumed by half the world's population on a daily basis, and the South-Indian's love for potatoes is eternal! Be it breakfast, lunch or tea – one or several potato preperations always grace the table. Sold by food vendors across the region and made often in South-Indian households, Aloo Podimas is one such famed Sou’thindi’. Baby potatoes are fried till they’re golden and crisp, and coated with a spicy masala, cumin and fennel seeds. A side-dish or just a quick snack, Aloo Podimas works both ways!
