Buttery Potato Bake

Potatoes are my favourite! chaat, tikki, Mc Veggie, Samosa, Bread roll, Break pakoda and on and on all have potato as the hero of the dish. Mmmmmmm…… 🙂

They are so versatile that one can write a whole cookbook only on potato dishes! Every mother in my family (and my big family has a lot of them!!) cooks potatoes differently! I wish I could have potatoes in all my meals and not worry about eating healthy!

I came across this recipe in an aluminium foil print ad! Yes seriously aluminium foil ad! 🙂 Anyway the recipe was fairly straight forward so I thought of trying it for dinner. And whenever I am alone for dinner, as was the case yesterday, I love to experiment! 🙂

But when I tasted it, hot out of oven, it was so soft, so buttery and the aroma of rosemary… I instantly loved it. And it doesn’t require more than 10 minutes of effort… most of the work is done by the oven!
