                                                            From my childhood I have a habit of collecting the interesting articles from the news papers. Now when I look back to those articles, they seem to be nothing in this fastly growing internet age ( as everything is available in the net), but definetly interesting and important at that point of time. And one of the important things which I used to collect without fail was Cooking articles from Eenadu sunday magazine. I have been collecting cooking articles from almost 12 years. Even other magazines also used to feature the cooking articles, but I used to like eenadu`s. The thing which attracted me was, the presentation. I tried them only after my marriage, infact I started cooking after marriage. My mom always used to crack jokes on me about my recipe collection, since I never ever did anything in my mom` kitchen. Even now, whenever I go to my mom`s house, I don`t help her in kitchen. Neither I help her nor she asks me some help. Parents are so kind right, they don`t want their kids to work and get tired even for couple of minutes. Ahh,,,,where am I going… now coming to this potato noodles in veg gravy recipe, the idea of doing potato noodles is based on one of the Eenadu`s recipes. I don`t remember recipe properly since I did not get my heavy recipe file here 😦 becoz of the weight reasons. The airlines to Tokyo do not allow more than 33 kg per person. I know I know, I am deviating from the main point. Now seriously to the recipe…… So here comes my recipe for JFI-Potato.

Notes :
1.I used 2 tbsp of garam masala in the potato noodles. But do remember that even gravy will also have spices. So, be careful using garam masala here.
2.I did not mash the potatoes properly, which was my mistake. Mash properly in order to have smooth flow of dough through the holes of Muruku maker.
3.I used corinder leaves in dough. Curry leaves can also be used.
4.Don t fry them for longer time, as they ll turn brown easily.
5.Potato noodles can be stored upto 2 days in airtight container.
