The best that happens in an emergency, no vegetable at hand, guests drop in... make a potato bhaji in a jiffy.... or if you just want to increase the volume to accommodate one more guest!
Err... vegetable side dish too salty, add potato!!
Wake up groggy in the morning to put together the husband's lunch box in a haste...
It's raining outside so you are craving for that aloo bhajji and garam chai .
If you are in India and returning from work, tired and irritated and hungry, what better than a vada-pav or a dabeli roti ?
Quick lunch? Pav-bahji ho jaye?
Fasting? Potato chips!
Burger and fries! (I mean Indian burger, potato patty!!)
Aloo ke parathe makkhan pa ke!
Sev-batata puri anyone? Ragda Patties?
So are you guys nodding reading all this? nod-nod..
Anyone remember playing 'bhaatukli' as kids? a gang of girls coming together to make lunch? Each bringing one food item... the vegetable would be potato (99.9% of the times)..nod-nod!!!
When I first came to the USA a couple of years ago we had no car to zip out and buy groceries as required, so the first thing I loaded up was potatoes, if nothing, this would come to my rescue anytime. It was the first time in my life that I also came across so many varieties of potato! White, red, Idaho, purple (?) potatoes.. Grabbing one bag of potatoes which looked like the Indian Potato we walked out confused.. purple??? potato??? Jet lag wore off a couple of days ago!! Purple?? Potato??
Then there was a time, before I started blogging, that I would visit websites, blogs (not knowing the difference between the two.. still don't as a matter of fact.. dhuh!!) and drool at recipes and take print outs like crazy and carefully file them for later. It was possibly then that I printed out the recipe...
