(Aloo Fry,Urulakizhangu Mezhukkupuratti)

Potatoes- 2-3

(You can use any type of potato - red, russet, yukon gold, baby potatoes, purple potatoes etc.)

Chilly Powder - 1-3 tsp (to suit your taste)

Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp

Salt - to taste

Oil - 2-3 tblsp

Optional Ingredients

Onion - 1/4 (sliced) - You can also use 3-4 whole pearl onions instead

Garlic Powder - 1/4 tsp (or 1 clove garlic crushed)

Crushed Cumin Powder - 1/4 tsp

Fennel Powder - 1/4 tsp

Garam Masala - 1/4 tsp
Crushed Peppercorns - 1/4 tsp

Curry Leaves - 1 spring (Chopped)

Cashew nuts - 1-2 tblsp

Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp

1. Wash the potatoes and peel them. You can even leave the skin on.

2. Cut the potatoes into uniform sized pieces. You can cut it into small cubes, long stripes or medium
sized chunks.

3. Partially boil the potatoes in the microwave or stovetop. This step is optional but it speeds up the frying

4. Take the potato pieces in a bowl and mix the spices with it.

A basic potato fry can be made with just chilly powder, turmeric powder and salt. But I like to spice it up
with some garam masala, crushed cumin, fennel powder and garlic powder. If you do not have all these
spices, you can also add 2-3 tsp of any brand chicken masala powder.

5. Heat oil in a non stick pan or kadai. Splutter the mustard seeds and curry leaves.

6. If you are adding onions and cashew nuts, add it at this time and fry for a minute. If not just proceed.

7. Add the spice rubbed potato pices. Keep the heat on medium high and start frying.

8. Stir fry till all the pieces are completely cooked and the potatoes become little crispy
