Potato (Aloo in Hindi) is the best energy giving food for humans. Potato is a starchy tuber crop, cultivated all over the world. Potato can be cooked in any form like boiled, mashed, shallow fried, deep fried either by peeling the skin or with skin. It can be cooked solo or as a combination with other vegetables. In whatever form it is cooked, it is liked by all especially children. Other than starch, it has some minerals too.
