POTATO STIR FRY(MEZHUKKUPURATTY)

Potato mezhukkupuratti is very tasty and medium spicy dish. Potato is one of the favourite item for  both South Indians and North Indians. Potato chips, potato beef curry and potato stir fry are the popular dishes of Potato. In this article, I would like to share the recipe of potato mezhukkupuratty or Potato Stir Fry. It is an excellent combination with rice and chapati. I like this dish very much so that I have made it at home so many times. We can prepare different types of dishes by potato and potato mezhukkupuratti is one of the famous dishes that are prepared by potato. Usually everyone is preparing this dish but in this recipe I have made it entirely different from other dish. Its main flavours are the combinations of fennel powder and garam masala. We have to cut potato as small pieces with same thickness for this dish. To get proper taste or texture it shouldn't overcook. If we over cook the potato it will become like potato masala curry. So we have to take care while cooking potato. We can use it as a side dish in lunch and dinner. I have followed completely traditional method because I like this flavour very much. If you like cumin seeds flavour you can add that also. It is very good recipe for those who like vegetarian dishes and it is very simple and easy recipe. This is little bit spicy dish and its taste is really amazing. This can give to children when they are going to school.
