Schezhwan Chili Potatoes

Schezhwan Chili potatoes is a Indo Chinese dish. The most common fusion cooking in India is Indo Chinese and this mouth watering spicy dish will make the taste buds tingle. Serve this hot with rice or roti. You could also do this with Paneer or Tofu instead of Potatoes. I did this from a Sanjeev Kapoor Cookbook and am sharing this for BM#25 under Cooking from a book.
