If you love fried potatoes then this is definitely going to be on your table very often. These spicy fried potatoes make an excellent side dish to almost everything ! Snack on them… eat them as a side dish… or even a vegan meal with a salad.
500 grams of potatoes, cubed ( best use potatoes for frying)
a good pinch of salt
a good pinch of Nitu Didi pure turmeric powder
a good pinch of hot red chilli powder
6-8 curry leaves
green chillies, chopped if you want it extra hot!!
1 cup of cooking or olive oil
Wipe the chopped potatoes with a kitchen towel to remove all moisture. Add the spices and mix well. Heat the oil in a good non stick frying pan ( i used my ceramic pans, to buy them visit my online store HERE)
Put a handful of potatoes carefully into the hot oil and fry till done. When half fried add the curry leaves so that they get the flavour of the curry leaves. Drain well and serve with your main dish or as a snack.
NITU DIDI TIP: The oil will then have the flavour of the spices, so you can use it for your cooking, but do not keep it for a long time.If you are going to use it soon, then fine..if not please just discard the oil. Thats why i tell you to use a handful of potatoes in a little oil so you dont waste.
Do you boil the potatoes first? Do you also remove the potato skin?
hi dear yes i peel the potatoes and then cut them into cubes, so they are uncooked and then fried
