Nutrition Value:

 Potatoes are pictured as ‘bad’ somehow may be because it is often consumed deep fried. Of course, anything that is deep fried makes the dish lose most of its nutrition value and also add so much of unnecessary calories. Surprisingly, Potatoes ‘with skin’ are rich in Vitamin C, Folate, Vitamin B6, Niacin, Potassium and so many other vitamins and minerals. So eating potatoes steamed, baked or stir fried provides adults and kids with optimum nutrition. Also, most of the vitamin C content is present right below the skin, besides, the skin also increases the fiber content of the dish, so do not remove the skin while cooking with potatoes.

In this dish, fenugreek leaves (any greens) when added to potatoes increases the iron content, also the vitamin C in potatoes helps increase the iron absorption level in the body making it more complete iron rich, nutrition dense food. And the best part is, kids who doesn’t eat much of green might also like it and eat it.
