Most of you would have eaten French fries or crisp chips that come in packets. The same is true of the spicy, hot masala dosa. When you eat any of these, you are consuming something that has influenced the history of the world – potatoes. Would it not be a little hard to believe that potatoes were an important factor in the Industrial Revolution, the world wars, and the growth of the European continent itself? It could be said that the history of the world is that of potatoes too!
