Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Lunch box :-), I love to cook lunch and pack it for my kids. This gives little work to my idle brain. I need to be very specific as their school won't allow few foods like Curry or Sambhar (watery), Upma, Eggs, non veg, Poha, bread and chips. My elder daughter loves to take different type of food as she loves to share her lunch with her friends and they love it. And that makes me a proud mother :-).
Most of the times I pack the different variety of rice for my elder daughter's lunch. But this Potato fry is my daughter's most favorite lunch. Many times she takes only the fry, but I pack the chapati with it without telling her :-)
A very simple recipe but tasty and good food for kids.
Potatoes - 3 big
Salt to taste
Red chilly powder - to taste or 1 tsp
Oil - 2 tbsp
Wash and peel the potatoes.
Cut into small cubes.
Heat the oil in a kadai.
Add these potato cubes.
Keep on stirring and frying till the potato gets 3/4th cooked.
Add salt and chilly powder, mix well and fry till its golden brown.
Remove from the heat and transfer it on a plate.
Allow it to cool and pack it with Soft Chapatis.
I tried to bake and grill it in the OTG, but the taste was not that good and it became very dry..
It can be rolled into chapati with some sauce or ketchup and make it a Fried Potato roll to serve it hot. Or it can be eaten just like that.
