Easy Sliced Potatoes Recipe

If you want a quick and easy vegetarian side dish then look no further because it doesn't get better than this.

I love sliced potatoes for this recipe, I think they look and taste so much better than cubed. This is delicious eaten with puri or with rice and daal.

This is one of those recipes that is so simple and so flavorful that you will want to keep it in your back pocket to make again and again.
