Spicy Potato Fry

Potato fry is one of my favourite side dish. In south Indian meals, it is good companion for sambar.This dish is made all over India. Most of the hotels serve potato fry with their meal plan coz potato is easily available vegetable and cheaper compared to other vegetables. When u fry potatoes, it has a crispness in them which makes it favourite dish for kids!!!!. Last sunday I made this fry with cabbage kootu. My hubby helped me, by cutting the potatoes into smaller pieces( see photo).


2 Potatoes chopped
2 tbsp redchilli powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp garam masala powder
4 tbsp oil
salt to taste

Clean potatoes and chop them into small pieces. Heat oil in frying pan, add chopped potatoes. Fry for few minute until the oil gets coated on potato. Cover and cook in medium heat for 10 mts. Remove cover add 1 tbsp oil and saute for few mts. Add red chilli, turmeric powder, garam masala and salt. Don't add water coz it will make potatoes mushy. cover and Fry for another 10 mts. Remove cover, add oil stir occasionally for another 15 mts. The potatoes will shrink and get brown color once it is fully done!!!. Add remaining oil and fry for 5 mts.

Serve with rice or chappathi!!!!
