this is true example that when potatoes are not deep fired they can be a bit healthy. the potato skin are a good source of folic acid while capsicum and broccoli provide enough calcium and vitamin C. All these nutrients together work to get a glowing skin and shiny hair. I also liked the idea of avoiding cheese and maida and using wheat flour for the stuffing.
