Potato fry looks fabulous... is it good for health Jay? how about cholesterol content in this?

Good job, keep it up...

Jay said...

sure you can Ayse..
you can vary the spicy level as per your option..;)

Jay said...

Hy leemz,
asafetida pwd is widely used for seasoning in Indian cuisine & will be available in all Indian stores nearby..
It is a powdered spice, possessing a potent aroma & good for digestion.

Jay said...

thanks GK for stopping by & inspiring feedback..
at times, v can compromise the cholesterol level with its lipsmacking taste..;)
I agree though its not suitable for the aged people..!
