Lasaniya Batata (Potatoes with Garlic)

Lasaniya batata is one of the most eaten dishes among the Gujjus. A brilliant combination of potatoes and garlic. Garlic gives a very  distinctive flavour to the stir fried potatoes. The chopped coriander added at the end perks up the dish. Relish this dish with meethi dal and rice.
