Tawa potatoes

Tawa or Tava as it is also sometimes known, refers to a flatter style of saucepan than the usual style.

This style of cooking potatoes is delicious and this dish would make a great starter as well as a main course.

PS: This dish can also be made in a pan on top of a BBQ for that smoked effect.
