Nutritional values

Potatoes and spring onions are excellent sources of vitamin C and potassium. It is even better if they are also prepared with as little fat like they are in this recipe. Vitamin C not only strengthens the immune system, it also ensures smooth skin and firm gums, and potassium plays an important role in the transmission of nerve impulses.

An Indian style yogurt sauce tastes good with the potato wedges, because the combination of potatoes and milk protein enhances the biological value even more.
