Potato Fry

Potato – yum is the word. Potato fry as a side makes anything delicious. This easy recipe goes well with rice, roti. Without much oil, adding little chickpea flour (Gram flour) gives new flavor to the potato.


Potato Fry:

Preparation Time : 10 mins | Cooking Time : 15 mins | Serves : 3

Recipe Category: Side Dish


Potato – 5

Sambar powder – 1/2 tsp

Turmeric powder – a generous pinch

Onion – 1

Coriander powder – 1/2 tsp

Cumin powder – 1/4 tsp

Chickpea flour – 1 tsp

Salt – as needed

To temper:

Mustard Seeds – 1/4 tsp

Split Urad Dal – 1/2 tsp

Channa Dal – 1/2 tsp

Oil – 1 tbsp


  • Pressure cook potatoes until tender (for about 3 whistles). Peel off the skin and cut into bite-sized pieces and keep aside. Heat oil in a pan, add the items under ‘to temper’ and let it crackle. Add onion and saute till onions are translucent


  • Add the cooked  potatoes and saute for a minute. Add turmeric powder, sambar powder, coriander powder, cumin powder and salt and give a quick stir and after a minute add chickpea flour


  • Fry until the potatoes turn golden brown. Turn the potatoes over to cook evenly on all sides

ImageMy Notes:

  • Add ginger and garlic paste while adding potatoes to reduce gastric problems
  • You can use chilli powder instead of sambhar powder
