Keralan Potato Roast


First of all...Is there anyone here who don’t love potatoes...I can see no hands...I know that most of us love it and many are mad about it..(See below)

I love potatoes but I don’t like to eat it everyday...But I know a person who is crazy about potatoes..She is none other than my friend Shabi....
Whatever you do with potato whether it is fried or sautéd or roasted or baked...Why not even boiled..she will straightly dig into that...The one form she stays away is RAW..But I am not too sure about this..

She even fights for potato.Yes fight for it..Saying this I like to share a little story about her..

We used to have our lunch as a huge gang in office..If anyone brings potato..Atonce she takes all the stuff and fills her plate and if anyone brings their hand near her plate she will start shouting like hell...Many of my friends are really scared of potatoes now because of this...

But I will sneak some potatoes from her plate when she is not watching....Don’t tell to her...LOL..

Ok Now coming back to this special potato fry...This dish comes straight from kerala and it is made with coconut oil and finished with lots of curry leaves...

This recipe is dedicated to my crazy friend...I know that she love to try this one..Because it is super delicious...

Ok with out no more delay....Off to the recipe...
