Potato fry, everybody ( well, at least most of us) loves this dish and everybody has their own way of doing it. This is the way my mother makes it, loved by all of her kids and now her grand kids join the list too. Especially on a cold rainy day, I love to have this with some rice and rasam, very comforting. A very simple and flavorful dish, give it a try, you'll love it..
Need To Have
- Potatoes - 3 medium
- Onion - 1 small
- Fennel Seeds - 1 teaspoon
- Turmeric Powder - 1/4 teaspoon
- Red Chilli Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
- Salt - to taste
Peel the potatoes and slice them. Grind coarsely the fennel seeds and the onion. To the pan that you are going to use for frying add the potatoes, the ground paste, salt, turmeric and chilli powders, mix well.
Now put it on the stove, add some oil and 1/8 cup water, mix, cover and cook on low heat. Check in between, once the potatoes are cooked, remove the lid, add some more oil and keep frying on low heat till it turns brown here and there and gets the fried look. Serve it warm with rice or rotis or as a filling for sandwiches.
You can use the potatoes with the skin, the red potatoes available in the US taste very good in this dish, do not use potatoes that are used for making mashed potatoes, the whole dish will become mushy.
The final texture is not like that of chips, but more like the French Fries kind.
