Lasniya bateta
 Garlicky Potatoes - step by step photos

You must got an idea on this recipe post by reading its name. It is Lasniya bataka. It is road side snack - street food recipe you found in gujrat specially in kathiyawad . It is served with fried papads or fryums. we called it "bhungda- bateta " where Bhungda  means Rice crackers and bateta means Garlicky potatoes.
I am using baby potatoes for making this recipe but you can use regular potatoes as well.
As name suggest, The main ingredient of the dish is Garlic. This is very simple recipe with least ingredient list.
This is kinda chaat recipe famous in saurashtra region.This is Super Spicy recipe. This is dry subji recipe with no gravy but if you want to have lasniya bateta with chapati then you can add tomatoes and water mixture to make gravy.
I like this dry and spicy version which is perfect for winter.

  1. Simple and mouthwatering delicious. I love garlic in my dishes and this one has a good amount of garlic in it. The addition of red chillies at the end of cooking gives this dish its radiant and inviting colour. I would love to have this dish with a lavish sprinkle of sev or rice crackers on top. Yummy..
