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
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.
2.Add ginger garlic paste fry for a minute. Then add onions and fry till golden brown. Add the cooked cut potatoes, add turmeric, chilli,sambar, garam masala powders and give a quick stir.
3.Give a stir and fry until the potatoes turn golden brown. Turn over to cook evenly on all sides.
Serve with rasam and rice. It goes well with curd rice too - my fav combo :)
- 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.
