Potato fry recipe

Potato fry recipe | South Indian potato fry recipe, easy and simple potato curry recipe with detailed step-by-step instructions.

This style of making potato is one of my favorite. A very popular recipe curry in Tamil Brahmin houses. My mom and grandmother make it so yum and we enjoy it with hot rasam rice. Even now, my kids love this simple potato fry. Apart from chopping the veggies, this curry is a very simple one. This pairs well with most of the South Indian dishes. Also, this potato curry is a no onion no garlic recipe too.

Potato curry, we make in different ways. I have posted my mom’s signature recipe of Potato curry with onions. That pairs well with rice and chapati too. You can make this same potato fry using sweet potato too. I highly recommend cutting the potatoes with skin which gives nice crispiness to the curry. Just wash it well and soak this in saltwater for 15 minutes and then cut the potato with skin.

    • Pat dry them in a kitchen towel for 5-10 minutes and let the moisture get absorbed. And if making in bulk, divide in 2 batches if your pan is small. They should have good moving space while you saute them. Else it will stick and become mushy.
