    An excellent receipe ! Would like to suggest that for people who like to try out something different-try using coconut oil in place of vegetable oil !!! Its definitely recommended from my side . Best with Chapathis (Phulka)/Roti & puri. A small piece of ginger to be added to the list on the receipe,Its included in the MOP. Enjoy!!!


    u haven't specified if the potatoes need to be peeled off before giving pressure.Could u plz specify
