I found these purple potatoes in the supermarket in Hochiminh city and bought them for 30 000 dong a piece. The purple colour is because of the anthocyanin present in them.
These potatoes are said to have more antioxidants than their regular counterparts,which makes them better fighters against diseases.They also have some blood pressure regulating properties.They taste almost like the regular potatoes but add more more pizzazz to the dish.
