About Carrot & Potato Fry Recipe
Poriyal is a Tamil term for any fried or sautéed vegetable dish. Palya is a Kannada word, vepudu is a Telugu word, and mezhukupuratti is a Malayalam word. Shredded or diced vegetables and greens, along with spices, are typically shallow fried.
Typically, mustard seeds, urad dal, onions, and the main vegetable are fried before adding turmeric, various spices, dried red chillis, and coriander. Shredded coconut is used as a dressing in Tamil Nadu. All poriyals include some vegetables, lentils, or greens by default, but there are numerous variations of the main vegetable.
Poriyal is a side dish served with rice, sambhar, rasam, and yoghurt as
art of a three-course meal (curds in Indian English). Poriyal is frequently served with chapati.

Ingredients for Carrot & Potato Poriyal Recipe
It was introduced to India by Portuguese sailors in the early 17th century, and British colonists spread its cultivation to North India. The potato is one of the most important commercial crops grown in the country. Potatoes are high in fibre, which can help you lose weight by keeping you fuller for longer. Fiber can help prevent heart disease by
maintaining healthy cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Potatoes are also high in antioxidants, which help to prevent disease, as well as vitamins, which help your body function properly.
Depending on the colour, size, and region of cultivation, this well- liked and adaptable vegetable may have a slightly different flavour. Carrots have a slightly sweet flavour from the sugar in them, but they can also have an earthy or bitter flavour.
They are used as a seasoning rather than a base flavour in many Indian dishes, and they really perk up a lentil or rice dish when fried in a little oil with curry leaves . As a result, mustard seeds are excellent for adding flavour without adding fat to your diet.
