Boiled Potato fry – 2

I’ve blogged earlier a different way of cooking boiled potato fry. In this recipe I used chilli powder instead of green chillis.
Potatoes : 4
Salt : to taste

Chilli powder : to taste
Turmeric powder: big pinch
Oil : 1 table spoon
Mustard seeds : 1/2 tea spoon
Cashew nuts: 5 (optional)
Chana dal : 1/2 tea spoon
Urad dal : 1/2 tea spoon
Curry leaves : 1 twig
Onion : 1; small, finely sliced (optional)
Coriander leaves : for garnishing

1. Boil, peel the skin and mash the potatoes (don’t mash them into fine paste).
2. Add salt, chilli powder and turmeric powder to the mashed potatoes and mix well.
3. Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds and let them splutter. Add cashew nuts, dals, curry leaves and sauté for 1 minute. Add onions and sauté till onions become translucent.
4. Now add the potato mixture and combine well. Sauté on low heat till the raw smell of turmeric is gone. Garnish with chopped coriander.
