Chilli Potatoes With Bell-Peppers Recipe

image

Chilli Potatoes- One of very popular recipes of Indo-Chinese cuisine. It is served as a starter. This dish is full of varied flavors which complement each other very well . Some people add bell-peppers and some skip it. I am a fan of this crunchy and healthy vegetable. So, I like to use it in my dishes as much as I can.

It is a high calorie recipe as deep-fried potatoes have been used . But once in a while, you can indulge in it as its scrumptious taste surely justifies the calorie count.

This dish can be prepared very easily and quickly. So, prepare a large serving  and share it with your family/friends.
