Great, simple recipe. Thanks so much!


Basic idea is good, there are to types of potato fry, the one that is brown or reddish in color (2 big potatoes, cubed; garlic, 1-2 segments crushed with peel still on; oil, 1TbSpn; 1tSpn chili powder; salt, to taste-->heat oil in pan, add the crushed garlic, allow to fry, add the chili powder and allow it to warm, then add the cubed potatoes and salt, stir occasionally) and the one that is yellow in color (2 big potatoes, cubed; 1/2 tSpn mustard seeds; 1/2 big onion cut in long lengths; 3-4 green chillies, cut in long pieces; curry leaves;1/2 tSpn turmeric powder;1 TbSpn oil;salt; 1 segment crushed garlic-->heat oil in pan, add the mustard seeds and curry leaves, when the seeds start to pop,add the onions,green chilies and garlic, saute, add the potatoes, salt and turmeric powder...stir occasionally). Cover the pan with a lid while cooking so the potatoes cook well, if you want the fry to be dryer remove the lid and leave on the stove for some more time after the potatoes are cooked...Thanx.


after heating oil in kadi add litte bit musted seed and curry leaves and at the end sprinke with corrinder leaves it gets good aroma & taste


good dish
