Simple Potato Stir Fry

Potato is a kid-friendly vegetable.. They love eating this starchy vegetable in many forms like chips, fries, samosas, cutlets, masala curry, stir fry, etc.
Let's see how to make this simple potato stir fry :)          


What you need:

Cubed  potatoes-2 cups
Chilly powder-1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder-a pinch
Crushed dried fenugreek leaves (kasuri methi)-1 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Oil-4 tablespoons
For seasoning-a few mustard seeds, cumin seeds and some skinned black gram (urad dal).

  1. Heat the oil in a wok (kadai) or pan and add the skinned black gram, mustard seeds and cumin seeds. Once the skinned black gram turns light brown in colour, add the cubed potatoes.
  2. Stir fry them for two to three minutes on a medium flame and add turmeric powder and salt.
  3. Mix it well and cook it cover for two minutes. Lower the flame and add chilly powder.
  4. Fry it uncovered for five to six minutes and make sure it doesn't burn. Add the crushed dried fenugreek leaves and fry for two more minutes.
  5. Turn off the stove and transfer the stir fry into a serving bowl and serve with hot rice and pappu charu or rasam or majjiga charu (majjiga pulusu).
Note: After transferring the fried potatoes into the serving bowl, do not cover it immediately. Allow it to cool for 2-3 minutes to avoid the softening of the dish from the steam that builds up when left covered.
