Batate bhajun Upkari ~ Roasted Potato Stir-fry
Whenever amma asks me details about the blog and what my latest post is,it so happens that it'd be a cake or a baked goodie or something else.She always says,why don't you post something which we make on a regular basis,you know, different upkaris/ghashis etc.Which actually makes me sit and ponder.
I started the blog way back in 2008 without a clue what blogging was all about.Initial entries of mine were all dishes made for breakfast,lunch and dinner.Slowly I graduated to posting stuff from different cuisines etc and after the baking bug hit,it was baked goodies all through.
Sometime back when I made our favorite roast potato stir-fry,I thought about what amma said and decided to post this on the blog.So here is a very basic and simple potato stir fry which goes well with rice and dal and is a great combination with chapathi/rotis too.
Batate bhajun Upkari - Roasted Potato Stir-fry
Potatoes - 2,medium
Oil - 2 tbsp*
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
Red chilly powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Peel and slice potatoes into thin triangular pieces and soak in enough water till required.
In a kadai add oil and splutter mustard seeds.
Drain the potatoes and mix in.Add red chilly powder and enough salt to taste.
Stir well and cover with a tight lid and cook for 10 minutes stirring often.
When the potatoes are cooked,remove the lid and cook for further 10 minutes on simmer or till the potatoes are roasted evenly.
*Oil can be added as per ones choice-more oil would make the roasting speed up and the potatoes more crisp.
