This small potato fry is a very quick and easy recipe that I usually make for mittus lunchbox to accompany any rice dish or phulka.You can use this recipe either for baby potatoes or with normal potatoes.I usually make with the usual potatoes, slice them thin and toast in dosa tawa which I shared in Instagram few weeks back.Seeing that few of my friends asked for the recipe and it is just a simple idea that I am sharing here, may be it will be useful for few atleast.Check out another potato fry recipe that I posted earlier.

My Notes:

  • The number of whistles in cooker depends on the size of small potatoes and also ur cooker so adjust accordingly.
  • I used my iron kadai to roast the potatoes and it worked best.
  • You can even add a pinch of chat masala powder / jeera powder for extra zing.
