Simple Potato Roast

Simple way of preparing the potatoes, very good side dish for sambhar rice, my favourite dish..learned this from my mom..this roast will be always in our friday menu when i was kid..we r great fan of this roast n am still..


3nos Potatoes(medium size)
1no onion(big)
1tsp fennel seed
5nos garlic pods
1tsp red chilli powder
5nos curry leaves
salt
Oil

Pressure cook the potatoes upto 3hiss...peel the skin n cut them small pieces..add the redchilly powder n salt to the potatoes pieces, mix well with ur finger n keep aside for half an hour..cut the onions into small pieces, grind together the fennel seed n garlic pods in a mixie bit coarsely..

Heat 4tsp of oil, add the finely chopped onion pieces with a pinch of salt n cook them well until they turns transculent, add the grounded paste,curry leaves n cook again for a while..add the spiced potato pieces n cook in simmer with lid closed..dont add water at alln, if u add water they will turn mushy,cooking in simmer with lid closed will helps the potatoes to get well roasted..cook until the oil get separated..

Tasty Spicy Simple Potato Roast is ready!!!!
