Mashed Potato Dip

Standard

Mashed Potato Dip is one of my favorite dishes, all of a sudden on one rainy day I prepared this dish when I found some mashed potato lying in my refrigerator. I accompanied this Mashed Potato Dip with Spinach Paratha. The dip was too good; this goes out well with tossed bread or used as a spread for sandwich. Let us move on to the recipe…
