Potato Rice

BM #67 Week 1 Day 2 -

Here is a personal favorite from my childhood. My mom used to make this for my lunch box and since my brother and I were Potato lovers, I guess we never had an issue of taking this delicious Aloo rice to school. My brother is still an ardent potato lover while I have drifted away from potatoes. 

So I can say that this is a life saver for all those potato lovers out there!!
