  1. Chinese potatoes has a distinct smell and flavor which remains intact even after cooking, which gives it’s special flavour to the dish… Taking out the skin is the most difficult part of preparing this into a dish. Easiest being soaking it overnight in water and putting them into a cloth or net like bag and rubbing against a rough surface can remove three fourth of it’s skin…after which it is manually cleaned and chopped up and cooked and eaten up. But worth the effort i would say.
    The image of Chinese potato done in Chinese style with chopsticks is amazing.
