Potato fry, a simple recipe with minimal ingredients and prepared in a jiffy. Full video, detailed step by step pictures post.
I make few potato curry for lunch, same as I have posted earlier. But this one makes rare appearance as Aj is not a big fan of this kind of cube cut potato fry. I make potato curry only for Aj sake while I make poriyals. So it will be his choice, mostly baby potato pepper fry these days. Fresh ground masala potato curry is made so often at my in-laws place. But I make rarely for the same above reason.
Since I have been posting all simple recipes, thought of posting this one too. Check out my other south Indian potato recipes for lunch. Potato curry with fresh ground masala Classic potato curry Small potato curry Spicy baby potato pepper fry
