Potato fry is a very simple dish that my children absolutely adore. So much so, that for the almost one year that we stayed in India, they took it for lunch with curd rice. Almost every single day!! Yes, almost every single day! May sound a little weird but that’s how much they loved it and still do.
I have a video tutorial to go with this recipe . You can check it out here.
1/2 tsp Mustard Seeds/Black Gram
2 cloves Garlic (crushed)
A pinch Asafoetida
1 large Red Onion Chopped
4 medium Potatoes Chopped ( Soak chopped pieces in water)
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
1 tbsp Sambar Powder
Salt to taste
Take a pressure pan or a thick bottomed pan.Add 2tbsps of oil, add mustard seeds and asafoetida.Add Chopped onions, sautés till pink. Drain water and add the chopped potato pieces.Wait for a minute. Add turmeric powder, Sambar powder, and sauté till the potato pieces are well cooked. Sprinkle a little water if necessary. When the potato pieces are dry and look fried, remove from stove.
