#. In this recipe potato is the main ingredient which makes this pickle a special one. Besides, you can even add green peas, chickpeas or any other additional ingredients as per your taste. But i prefer to eat just with potato and with above mentioned ingredients which is my favorite.
#. This recipe is as simple as it looks. Nothing is so complicated in this recipe if you follow my mentioned procedure i assure you that you will definately enjoy it.
#. In this recipe you can twist the ingredients and add any ingredients you like but i suggest to eat as it is. Because sometimes simple ingredient doesnt require additional ingredient to taste better.
