Bombay Potatoes


I am a potato girl...I could not live without potatoes..I want it on my plate atleast twice a week...

Mostly it will some kind of poriyal which is just sauted potatoes with some indian spices...

Amma makes potato poriyal by just cooking potatoes in chilli powder and salt.She will cook it till the potatoes is little crispy..The trick is she starts making poriyal with a little oil..At the end of the dish she will add couple of good tblspn of oil and increase the heat to a high..This makes the potato nice and crispy....This is the common way for us to eat potato..


Todays dish is a special way to eat this dazzling universal potato...It can be called as spiced up potatoes...The spice level will be little high..Thats what takes this dish to the next level..

So here you go for the recipe..
