One of my fellow Hubber Dreanreachout has informed me that this recipe is called 'CHOKHA' or 'ALU CHOKHA' in North Indian States like UP. MP, Bihar etc. with a slight modification in the procedure. You have to add onion along with garlic. Onion has to be fried well before adding mashed potato to it.
