Potato Roast Recipe with step by step pictures. Simple urulai roast made with onions, potatoes and spices. This taste amazing with rice.
Potatoes are my favourite, i make them quite often. These ginger flavoured are so good. Adding onions to this makes it more tasty.
I made these and served with plain rice, tomato rasam and curd. It was delicious. I used kashmiri chilli powder, because i wanted to have a bright red colour without the heat.

This is a kind of potato roast which requires no fancy spices..This recipe is very straight forward..You only need basic two spices and you are done..The one thing about this dish is it requires quite a bit of time to roast. You should cook it in low flame for a long time so that the potatoes gets nice and crisp..Alternatively you could even use an oven to roast the potatoes,But I find stove top works fine. This is my favorite potato roast and I make this more often. I will surely post amma’s favorite potato fry in another one post.
