Potato Podimas

I love the simplicity of this dish and yet this is a favorite in our home! When there's not much time to make an elaborate dish, then the faithful potato comes to the rescue. I don't add much spice to this dish since I mostly make this for my kids, you can make it more spicy to your preference.
