baby potato love

india is among the top five producers of potatoes in the world and potatoes are really a temperate climate crop. we obviously grow and eat a lot of potatoes. the best part is we eat it as a vegetable, and have ample ways to cook it, most common being aloo curry, aloo pakoras and so many more.

it is also nutritionally smart to not peel potatoes. potatoes are not just full of unhealthy carbs, but in fact, they are loaded with vitamins and minerals and are nutritious and delicious with the skins on. peeling removes a lot of the nutrients and dietary fibre which are concentrated in the peel or just below them. these small potatoes are actually undeveloped babies that are harvested before they develop into fully mature potatoes. that’s why they moniker “baby potatoes”?
