Potato fry is my all time favorite either with rice or even wit rotis. This is the easiest fry when you are running out of time and pairs well with your meal.We are enjoying the showers here and the climate is so chill that our winters wears are already out. Easy and comforting food has been our daily routine these. I've already posted a different version of potato curry but this potato fry is mittus most fav. This is a very easy and quick version of potato fry. Simple lunch menu ready - Rice,Rasam and Potato fry
Potato Fry Recipe

Easy Potato Fry Recipe - Ingredients

Preparation Time : 10 mins | Cooking Time : 20 mins | Serves : 2
Recipe Category: Side dish | Recipe Cuisine: South Indian

Potatoes - 2
Sambar powder - 1/2 tsp
Ginger Garlic paste - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - a generous pinch
Chilli powder - 1/4 tsp
Garam masala powder - a generous pinch(optional)
Salt - to taste

To temper:

Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
Split Urad Dal - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - few
Oil - 2 to 3 tsp

Method:

  1. Pressure cook potatoes until soft say for about 3-4 whistles. Peel of the skin and cut into bite sized pieces and keep aside.Heat oil in a kadai(I used iron kadai, you can use on stick too) - add mustard seeds, urad dal, curry leaves - allow it to crackle.

Potato Fry

My Notes:

  • Add ginger and garlic while adding potatoes to reduce gastric problems.
  • While tempering you can add replace urad dhal with jeera / fennel seeds(sombu).
  • The advantage of using a nonstick kadai is that even if you add less oil the veggies get roasted well.
  • The bhaji goes well with toasted bread too.
  • Dont skip butter as its the main ingredients which makes this chat tastier.
