Potato Stir fry / Potato Roast


Potato mezhukkuperatti is a lovely combination with hot rice.  I used to make it as a  side dish for boiled rice. Here I would like to include two recipes with potato, one is thoran or stir fry and the other one is a roasted version. Since the main ingredient is potato I’m combining two dishes in the same post.

Ingredients (Stir Fry)

  • Potato – 4 (sliced into long pieces)
  • Dry Red Chilly – 2
  • Shallots – 4
  • Green Chilly – 2
  • Curry Leaves – 1 sprig
  • Grated  Coconut – 1/3 cup
  • Turmeric Powder – 1/4 teaspoon


  1. Mix together Coconut, Turmeric powder and Salt  well and keep aside.
  2. Heat Oil in a pan and splutter mustard Seeds. Add Dry red chilly, shallots, curry leaves and green chilly, fry till it starts to brown.
  3. Add drained potato and saute for a minute. Add the Coconut mixture and cover it with Potato. Cover and cook till the potato is cooked. Mix everything really well.


  • Potatoes – 3
  • Turmeric powder – ¼ teaspoon
  • Red chilly powder – ½ teaspoon
  • Garam masala powder – ½ teaspoon
  • Asafoetida – a pinch


  1. Boil the potatoes till they are just cooked. Peel the potatoes and dice them.
  2. Heat oil in a pan, crackle the mustard seeds then add the curry leaves and saute.
  3. Add the diced potatoes, sprinkle all the spice powders, asafoetida and salt. Stir well, so that the masala coats the potatoes well. saute for 5-6 mins on a low flame.
  4. Stir in between  and turn off when it is crispy.
