I dont cook potatoes very often. Honestly, i dont like those gargantuan burly potatoes. I prefer the baby bite sized potatoes. Occasionally, when i do buy a few potatoes, our meals see this delicious creamy stew and we gorge on this alongside lacy aapams. They make a hearty breakfast that s very amiable with the tummy. I m not going to talk much today. Oh! i m just a lil tongue tied after a hectic Sunday. So this post is just going to be some stew, aapam and me.
