Grated and fried potatoes with roasted peanuts

We Maharashtrian love fasting but at the same time we don’t want to starve ourselves. So we invented many delicious dishes which we consider eating while keeping the fast 😀

Potatoes are very versatile and are considered as a good source of carbohydrates which generates the energy in our body. So I am presenting one dish which uses potatoes and peanuts, which I love eating during the fasting days.
