Mangalore Spiced Potatoes

Mangalore Spiced Potatoes

This is a spicy and versatile potato dish,flavored with South Indian spices. It is flavored with cumin,roasted coconut and curry leaves. I used baby potatoes,but you can also use the regular ones. Try adding other vegetables like green peas or spinach to this potato dish. It is a perfect accompaniment with rice or pulao.

Baby Potatoes- 1 lb (or two medium sized)
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Chilly powder- 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder- a dash
Hing/asafetida- a dash
Grated Coconut- 3 tbs
Curry leaves- a few
Dry red chilly- 2
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
salt as needed
Chopped coriander leaves- 3 tbs
Salt to taste

Wash and cook potatoes. Use a large sauce pan with enough water to cover the potatoes. Cook till the potatoes are tender for about 10-12 minutes. Peel potatoes and set aside.
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and when it splatters add curry leaves,hing  and shredded coconut. Stir fry till the coconut changes color to golden brown.Add chilly powder,salt,pepper powder and mix and then add the potatoes and toss and coat the potatoes with the masala. Reduce the flame to low and allow the potatoes to roast, stir occasionally for about five minutes. Sprinkle coriander leaves and switch off the flame. Serve as a side dish for rice.

Try this,
Hope you will all enjoy!
