Being an Odiya potato is one of my favourite vegetable and a staple food in Odisha. Alu chokha is a very simple and esay recipe. It's a must in my in-laws home and my hubby's favorite dish too!😊😉.Main flavour of this dish is Mustard oil!. Plaese don't skip the step while preparing the dish.And it's equally famous in Bihar and Jharkhand popularly paired with"Litti Chokha".

Like to share some benefits of potato as there is a wrong concept about potato make us fat.
Though potatoes may be thought of as a fattening food, a medium, unsalted plain baked potato with skin has only 160 calories and is naturally fat- and cholesterol-free. ... Potatoes also offer vitamin B6, vitamin C and iron, and are an excellent source of potassium.

Important to a healthy diet, one medium-sized (5.3oz) skin-on potato has:
  • Just 110 calories😉.
  • No fat, sodium or cholesterol.
  • Nearly half your daily value of vitamin C.
  • More potassium than a banana.
  • A good source of vitamin B6.
