This is my first posting on my blog and the recipe I am posting is a simple one, alu-fry. Almost everyone loves potatoes and likes to have them . This is one of my husband's favorite dishes and he prefers to have the potatoes fried till they get roasted nicely and crispy. I think the simplicity of this recipe makes it more tastier :).

Cooking is an art which everyone expresses in their own way. For me cooking is an art and a journey which is never ending. I will post recipes mostly which are South Indian where I hail from. My inspiration to start my own blog came after I started trying recipes from various blogs. I hope you will enjoy my recipes and your comments are always appreciated.

      Hi Vishali, I liked your recipes and I tried the Alu fry. It came out very well. Your instructions were very clear unlike some blogs I read about Asian Food. Please do post more like these :)
