Potato Chatpati Frankie

Much delighted to have this guest post today from the very talented Shreya Tiwari. An incredible cook, she is a wonderful person always looking forward to helping everyone around her. While she easily cooks to taste that brings joy from her preparation, she is a powerhouse of ideas that add immense health with just no compromise on taste.

Today, she picks from the best of her creations, a typical street food popular in Mumbai as 'Potato Chatpati Frankie'  !!!!

From the kitchen of Shreya:

I have known her for just a few months now... but we really did click over food. She's a really nice girl! We met through a food group and became friends... discussing recipes and stuff.
I love her food, it's delicious n honest. Do try her Rava Muruku! I's fabulous ☆☆
When she asked me to do a guest post for her blog....I didn't think twice before agreeing!!
But I did think about what I wanted to make for her.. and played with a few ideas that didn't sit well with me...
However, Potato Chatpati Frankies seemed to work... and will be sharing the recipe here.
I am super proud of Deepti... and I know Cookoholichomemaker will Rock!!
