Inherently #vegan Konkani food series (there are so many!) — number one is a family favourite: Batata upkari, aka potato stir fry. Super easy, super healthy, and a great last minute addition to any meal in a pinch! Kids love it too- my boys call it Konkani “French fries” ?. And please don’t be afraid of the potato- remember that it is full of healthy nutrients including fibre, vitamin C, vitamin B6, potassium, and believe it or not, a great source of #plantbasedprotein!
