Why potato (Aaloo) is given preference in all the dishes we make?Members,
I love and like Aaloo (Potato). It is a tasty vegetable to consume. But I find much importance is given to potato. Whatever dish we have, we find potato in it, especially in hotels and restaurants.
1. Samosa contains potato
2. Aaloo parotta contain stuffed potato.
3. Apart from potato as an independent dish, we have
a. Aaloo Baingan
b. Aaloo Gopi
c. Aaloo Palak
d. Aaloo Bindi
e. Aaloo Paneer
f. Aaloo Tomato
g. Aaloo Mutter
And much more to add with othervegetables in the list with Aaloo as a prefix.
These varieties are found only in the North India. In south, no such preference is given to Aaloo to get mixed with other vegetables. Why this special treatment to Aaloo alone?
Can the members explain the reason, please?
