Chinese Potato is very tasty item that is like Potato, Colocasia and Yam. This is also known as Koorka in Kerala. I think it is mostly used by Keralites and it will be available on market in the month of November and December. Removing its peel is little bit difficult process but we can use different methods to remove its peel. So try to select big Chinese Potato from market when you buy it. I cannot express its taste by words and I like it very much. We can make variety tasty dishes with this tasty vegetable by using different methods. I have made many dishes with this and all are really tasty and good.
I made spicy Chinese Potato stir fry here. Coconut Pieces is giving good taste to this dish. I used only traditional ingredients to make this dish. It is having the mixed smell and taste of Garam Masala Powder, Fennel Seeds Powder and Cumin Seeds Powder. This is an excellent combination with hot plain Rice for lunch.
