Baby Potato Fry

Potato Fry Today morning I got a call from my son’s Abacus teacher and inform me that today there is no abacus class. That was good news for me. Actually Thursday evening is only time to sit peacefully in front of computer as Friday and Saturday are holidays for my kids. I decided to use that time to post one recipe, But what to post? I scanned all my memory and got one .This I cooked on my lending time. That time I made lot of experiments on vegetarian items .This one also is the output of such an experiment. The original recipe is from Friday Magazine.

Potato Fry Ingredients

12 baby potatoes, boiled with salt and turmeric powder and peeled
1tsp mustard seeds
1tsp coriander seeds
6 red chilies
2tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp Bengal gram (chana dal)
Curry leaves, a few
½ tsp turmeric powder
1 cup finely chopped onion
1tsp ginger-garlic paste
2 tomatoes, chopped
6 tsp oil

Method

Heat 1 tsp oil in a wok and splutter mustard seeds. Add red chilies, coriander, chana dal, curry leaves and 1 tsp cumin seeds. Stir till chana dal is golden brown. Cool and coarsely grind. Keep aside.
Heat 2 tsp oil and sauté onion till soft and transparent. Add ginger-garlic paste, salt and tomato. Fry on slow heat till tomato is soft and it becomes a smooth mixture. Add ground masala and stir in potato. Gently mix to ensure that the masala coats the potato well. Keep aside for an hour. Heat oil and splutter remaining cumin seeds. Add potato along with the masala and sauté till the potato turns golden(I didn’t wait for that)..Serve hot with chapattis.
