“This recipe came from a hotel in Bangalore India. Bangaladumpa Vepudu means "fried foreign root" in the South Indian language Telugu. The foreign root is potatoes. This yummy and unusual dish works well for a party, if your company can take the heat. To make it less spicy, reduce the number of chilies. I always do. You can also tame the heat with some yogurt.”
