Batata Talasan

I always keep on wondering about this magic stem vegetable. Potato is so simple and still so versatile that they can be added to just any dish. Till today I have hardly come across a person who doesn't like potatoes. They can be used in savoury as well as sweet dishes, in bakes, in fries almost any dish. Today I am posting a very very simple and basic but the yummiest of all vegetables  with potatoes . I just love to have it with a simple daal rice. Its one of my favourite comfort foods since childhood. As a kid I used to look forward to mondays because on most of the mondays we would prepare this simplest and tastiest dish..............


Ingredients :

1/2 kg ....................potatoes
1 1/2 tsp................mustard seeds
1 tsp.....................turmeric powder
2 tsp ...................chilly powder
1/2 tsp..................asefotida
2 to 3 tbsp ..............oil
salt as needed




Method :

Wash and peel the potatoes and cut them in cubes.
Heat oil add mustard seeds.
When they splutter lower the flame add haldi pd, chilly pd, hing and immediately add potatoes.
If the oil is too hot add the potatoes first or else the haldi and chilly pd will get burnt.
Finally add salt and stir fry and cook without covering with a lid.
