Recipe: Masala Potol

It is a perfect side dish for almost any rice and the hot crispy taste makes it a snack by itself for me. This is not only perfect in taste, but is also very healthy. It is very healthy dish for diabetes. Some people slit it into quarters while others cut them into thin rings, either way, it will be perfect.
