For kids and elders, the most favorite veggie is "Aloo/Potato" and Known as "Bangaladumpa" in Telugu Language. My Grand Mom used to tell me that during her childhood days only very few people used to do potato cultivation and those people used to exchange potatoes for some other food items. In those days, if potatoes are in food menu of a function means it was the biggest function(Very rich people) in that area. She used to tell that potatoes are very costly in those days. But know potato is commonly available vegetable and we can find recipes made with potato in many functions. Today's recipe is Aloo Kurma.....
