Garlic Potato Fry / Poondu Urulai Varuval

This is one of the simplest  and a favourite recipe in our family. Best accompaniment for variety rice, sambar rice and curd rice!


Potatoes - 3 medium sized
Garlic – 6 to 7 cloves (crushed)
Red chilli powder - 1 ½ tsp (Adjust according to your spice level)
Turmeric powder – ½ tsp
Salt – to taste
Curry leaves – 1 sprig
Oil – 1 tbsp


Pressure cook the potatoes until it becomes soft but firm and allow it to cool.  Peel the skin and cut into small sized cubes.

Beat garlic with a rolling pin to crush it slightly.

Heat oil and season it with curryleaves and fry garlic for 1 minute.

Add spice powders, salt and mix it in low flame.  Add the chopped potatoes to the spice mix.

Add the cubed potatoes; mix till the masala coats well (don’t over mix the potatoes, there is a chance of them getting mashed up).

Cook on low flame for 10 to 15 minutes till becomes dry and potatoes get roasted.

Serve hot.


If you want more spice try adding pepper powder!
