Potato 65 Recipe/Aloo 65 Recipe/Hyderabadi Style Aloo 65 Recipe/How to make Aloo 65 with step by step photos

Now that the weather is getting really cold, I made this scrumptious Potato 65 which I came across years back in one of the magazines when I was in Chennai. This potato 65 may look spicy with all the red chillies and green chillies, but they are not. This potato 65 is my kids favourite and they can finish one whole plate at one time. Few other 65 recipes I have posted earlier and worth visiting are Chicken 65, Hyderabadi Chicken 65, Prawn 65 , Cauliflower/Gobi 65 and Mushroom 65.

There are many types of frosting or icing that is made in different ways for the cakes. I personally prefer soft, light and fluffy cream for the cakes rather than the fondants.
