  • Wash the potatoes, clean and pat it dry. Make thin and even cuts but not all the way through. You can simply place skewers on the sides which will guide you not to cut through completely.

  • Add in all the above ingredients except the greens, in a mixing bowl and toss the potatoes till they are coated well.
