Chettinadu style Potato fry

Hubby and me are potato-holics. Anything with potato make us go yum!!! I love trying new potato recipes and if it becomes the huss's favorite then it is a definite keeper. This recipe is one like that.
The crunchiness of the dhal compliments the softness of the potatoes very well. This recipe makes a yummy side dish for tomato / lemon / tamarind rice.

~*What U Need*~
For masala
Urad dal - 4tsp
Channa dal - 2tsp
Sesame seeds - 1 tsp
Red chillies - 2
Whole peppercorns - 1/2 tsp

For frying
Oil - 1 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Onion - 1
Potatoes - 2
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp

How I Made it:
Dry roast urad dal, channa dal, sesame seeds, red chillies and pepper corns till they change color. Cool this and grind to a coarse powder.
Boil the potatoes and cut them into chunks of desired size. Chop the onion.
Heat oil in a kadai and when hot add cumin seeds and curry leaves. Next add the onions and saute till done.
Add the boiled potatoes, turmeric powder and salt. Fry till golden brown.
Next add the ground masala. Mix well and fry for another 10 minutes and turn the stove off.

Serve hot with any rice.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,

Signs off!!!
