Grilled Masala Aloo Wedges

Best Blogger Tips
Entertaining guests at your place can be quite tricky, especially if its the same old regular crowd coming in too often. You cannot repeat your snacks and make it a regular affair wherein all your friends are gonna be laying bets if Seekh Kababs will be featuring on the snacks menu again that evening. You also cannot prepare something so exotic that'll kill you throughout the day in the kitchen or keep you in the kitchen for most of the evening when the party is going on.
The easiest option is too choose a new restaurant each time and order some takeaways or home delivery. Else, you can keep your mind open and have ideas for new dishes flowing in.
My better half loves potatoes. Being a veggie she doesn't have too many options I guess, that too, coupled with the fact that she hates Paneer and Mushrooms. So I need to keep thinking on my toes for new potato dishes as starters. This recipe is one such concoction.
