Potato mezhukkupuratti / Potato Stir fry

Hey! here comes a very simple n easy recipe, can be a first try for those amateur cooks out there cuz this turns out to be too good to be avoided by anyone of your guests! :) . I remember, one of my college mates used to bring this for lunch very often and it so happens that she gets nothing left to eat when start 'tasting' her potato stir fry! So, I guess this is again a common recipe of most of the Kerala housewives who has got no much time to spend at kitchen.. Try it out!

Ingredients :

Potato : 4 nos.
Finely sliced onion : 2 nos.
Green chilly : 3 nos.
Curry leaves : 2 sprigs
Turmeric powder : 1 tspn
Chilly powder : 2 tspn
Coconut oil : 2 tbspn
Mustard seeds : 1/2 tspn
Salt : as required
  • Wash and peel off the skin of the potatoes. Dice them into tiny pieces and marinate with a little salt, turmeric powder and chilly powder and keep aside.
  • Take a non-stick pan and pour 1 tbspn of oil. Add mustard seeds and allow to splutter. 
  • Add sliced onion along with green chillies slit into halves or finely sliced ones. 
  • Add curry leaves and a little salt and saute until the onion gets transparent.
  • Add marinated potatoes and mix well with the remaining ingredients.
  • Cook covered under low flame for the potatoes to get cooked. Saute occasionally.
  • After about 5 minutes, add the remaining oil or you may opt for butter too.
  • Saute well and continue cooking covered, under low flame until the potatoes gets fried /roasted on all sides. Check salt and add if required.
Note : Do not add water to fasten the cooking process cuz that will mash the potatoes. This goes best with plain rice & chappathi.
