Potato Fry (Thoran)

1. Potatoes – 3
2. Chilli powder – 1 tsp
3. Turmeric Powder – ¼ tsp
4. Grated coconut – 4 tbsp
5. Green chillis – 2
6. Garlic – 1 big clove
7. Salt – as required
8. Mustard seeds – a pinch

1. Peel and cut potatoes into small cubes and put them in cold water for a few minutes. Crush the coconut, garlic and green chillis (can either use a coffee grinder or a small blender jar).

2. Heat oil in a non-stick kadai. When hot put the mustard seeds. When they crackle, drain and add the potato cubes. Add salt, chilli powder and turmeric powder. Stir well.

3. Cook the potatoes till they are a little crisp, stir occasionally. Add the coconut mixture and mix well. Cover and turn the stove off. The dish is ready.

*Goes well with curd rice. Can also be had as a side dish with sambar rice or dal.
