She made these at home for the first time. All worth the effort, I am sure. :-)
It is less of a dish and more of an achievement.
Apparently, a regular feature at her mother's home in the hot summer months.
Now, what do you like more? The preparation or the pan or the photograph? :-)
Visit her post not just for the recipe but also for a few quotes and anecdotes.
You have seen recipes by mothers and mothers-in-law, but how many have you seen by fathers-in-law? Not many? Well, here's one.
For those who thought that potatoes are more for celebrations: Think again! Potatoes also belong to the plate when you are recuperating. Especially when the taste-buds need to be brought back to life...
This one will be great if paired with Jowar Rotis, I feel. A humble, healthy yet hearty meal that'd be.
That's curry and rice in one!
Salads / Side dishes
Did you know of a variey called Nicola Potatoes? And that they are waxy? Well, now you do! :-)
Potato Salad with Red Bell Peppers...hmmmm....Interesting!
The stuffing is potato!
The recipe is explained only in three steps. Too easy to be true? :-)
A combination of diverse ingredients.
Snacks / Starters
A traditional Maharashtrian fasting-snack. Of course, you don't necessarily have to be fasting to enjoy this one!
Apparently, potatoes have never been a favourite in her home. There are exceptions to every rule!
How do we decide who is versatile? The dish or its creator?
A good-looking dessert. And rather guilt-free too!

And it also makes you get tense! How am I gonna visit so many blogs? And how am I gonna read through so many posts? What happens to all those fancy ideas that I had for the round-up? Too many questions, and nearly no answers. What do I do then? Well, I do what I do best in such situations. Cannot decide on something? Procrastinate! I know, it's a lousy idea, but I often tend to do that, when I can't handle something. Which should explain the 10-day-long wait till the round-up, I guess.
Anyway, let me just stop this blabber and open up the gallery of Potato dishes. And hey, do not forget to bookmark this page coz when you run out of all veggies, you always still have potatoes...and whenever you run out of potato recipes, this is where you'll find something. :-)
By the way, I am publishing the round-up in parts because handling a post three times this big is not really easy. So, here's the first part.
* Please move the cursor over the picture to see the name of the dish and its creator. Click on it to get to the post.
Breakfast / Brunch
This new blogger on the block gives us two fantastic recipes which can be made with leftover Potato Bhaji. Scroll down for the other one...
A great looking breakfast dish. And guess what, the post gives you Nutrition Info too!
Tasty. Can-be-made-healthy. Exotic. What more do we want?
You can try this once you are tired of making of Dum Aloo the Kashmiri and the Benarasi and the Hyderabadi and the Chettinad way. Don't believe me? Check out the post!
She calls it just one of the many versions possible. I think it is more than just that...
Yet another classic! This time around it's from a Bengali kitchen.
One look at the photograph and you know that this curry is rich...and spicy. And what's the surprise? Mustard seeds in the paste!
Be ready to be pulled aside for the recipe of this one, if you are making it for a big crowd!
Kanchana says that this is the yummiest potato curry ever. And that you can make Potato Curry Sandwiches with it. You can make what? Yeah, exactly.
You too don't mind gobbling it up with hot 'Puris' without counting them, do you?
Apparently, you could serve it with Coconut Pulav. Oooooh, sinful!
And who said making Gnocchi at home was tedious?
Interesting combination, eh?
Salads / Side dishes
Easy to put together. Yet great to taste, I am sure. (Btw, that rhymes!)
Check out the post in case you want to know more about the Hakka Chinese cuisine in India!
I am sure they are a crowd-pleaser at any party. Baby potatoes always are, aren't they?
Perfect for my carry-to-work lunch, I feel.
Potatoes need not always be fattening, right?
Dumela brings these Cutlets to us despite an emergency surgery. That's the spirit!
