Boiled Potato Fry / Simple Potato Curry

      This recipe was taught to me by my neighbor sister. She was a catering student n i learnt more restaurant style recipes from her. This recipe is masala stir fry of hard boiled potatoes.The original recipe was to fry the potatoes in butter but i used oil only. This was also good n i made this along with Bisi bele bath, a perfect combination rt?? Yep we enjoyed a lot ...

  1. Potato  1 lb
  2. Onion  1 medium sliced
  3. Cumin seeds   1/2 tsp
  4. Curry leaves   few
  5. Chilli powder   1 tsp
  6. Turmeri powder  a pinch
  7. Garam masala    2 tsp
  8. Amchur powder  1and 1/2 tsp
  9. Salt   to taste

  • Boil the potatoes (90%) and do not make it too soft n mushy..hard boiled potatoes,peel the skin and cut into bite size pieces and keep aside. 
  • Heat 1-2 tbsp oil in a pan,add cumin seeds wait till it splutter then add curry leaves and sliced onions. 
  • Saute the onions for a minute and add the boiled and cut potatoes n turmeric powder. 
  • Fry the potatoes nicely ,once in a while gently toss them. 
  • Once the potatoes are nicely fried and turn little crisp n brown add dry powders(chili, garam, amchur) and enough salt. 
  • Mix everything well and fry in low heat till the masala leaves raw smell and the potatoes are nicely coated with the masala. 
  • Keep stirring and cook till the potatoes turn light crisp and turn off the stove. 
  • If u have some coriander leaves can add them now and leave it open in the stove..let it rest for few minutes. 
  • After that boiled potato fry is ready and serve as a accompaniment for rice/roti/puri etc.

You can also try this with baby potatoes.For kids,fry the potatoes(boil it fully) in butter,add less spices and pepper powder..definitely they will love to have them.
