Urulai Varuval

Ok this is one of the simplest way you can cook a potato. Just cubed par boiled potatoes pan fried till crisp. Best eaten with rice, sambar, dal, I even have this with dosa and roti.

Serves 3

Potato fry

You Will Need:

3 Medium Sized Potatoes, Skinned & Par Boiled
Some Finely Chopped Fresh Coriander Leaves
3 - 4 tbsp of oil

Spice Marinade:

A tbsp of Chilli Powder / Store Bought Red Chilli Powder
(I prefer homemade)
1/2 tsp of Turmeric Powder
1/2 Tsp of Garam Masala
1/2 Tsp of Cumin Powder
Salt to Taste

The Cooking:

Place the par boiled potatoes in a bowl and add all the spices. No need to add excess water. The water from the potatoes will help the spices to stick on, but do sprinkle a little if the potatoes are too dry.

Heat oil in a pan and tumble in the marinated potatoes. Don’t stir immediately, the spices will come off in the oil. Keep the heat medium and cook stirring occasionally till the spices are cooked and the par boiled potatoes are fully cooked through & the potatoes are a nice golden brown in the outside. Finally sprinkle the coriander leaves and stir and cook on medium cook for few mins.

  • You can also add cooked peas to the potatoes.

Happy Cooking!
