Palak Aloo Tikky & Dahi Baby Potatoes.

Palak Aloo Tikky  and Dahi Baby Potatoes are a snack or a chat dish. We can have Palak Aloo tikky and Dahi Baby potatoes as dinner too. Even we can have them as starter also. I have used very little oil and well taken care and used mild spices. Children especially love this dish since lots of potatoes are added and mother can be happy at least in this way she can feed her kid spinach. (Palak) and some calcium content that is Dahi. Palak and boiled potato tikky and Dahi Baby Potatoes definitely make all age group happy I am sure.

Palak is rich in potassium and low in sodium. It is a rich source of vitamin A and reduces the risk of eye diseases. Using Palak in your daily diet helps to control the blood pressure to normal levels. It reduces the hypertension and helps to maintain a proper blood flow. Palak is rich in minerals like manganese, copper, magnesium, zinc and phosphorus. These minerals help to build strong bones.
Another important mineral is found abudantry in spinach is Iron. Iron reproduce red blood cells. Iron also useful for boosting the body;s metabolism.
Potatoes are very good source of vitamin B6 and good source of potassium, copper, vitamin C, manganese, phosphorus and dietary fiber.
