Salient points in history of spuds !

Prompt ~
Linking up with Light & Shade challenge

Veggies baked, sautéed, deep or stir-fried taste better if they are coated in a fine-grounded paste of cilantro, green chilies, ginger and garlic. Baby-potatoes cooked with Indian curry-powder coated in such paste are my favorite.

A world without potatoes may have been a very different place.

Marie Antoinette put the five-lobed potato-flowers in her hair. Her husband, Louis- XVI, put one in his buttonhole in an attempt to persuade French farmers to plant and eat spuds.

The potato fed fast growing populations of European states. The well fed people colonized most of the world and changed the course of history.
