Batata Kachrya (Spicy Potato Vegetable)


This is one of my favourite potato dish.I have childhood memories of one of my aunt making this for me everytime I used to visit her house.Goes very well with meetha dal and rice,though I can have it on its own also.This dish requires little extra oil to give crispiness to potatoes.I usually let it cook little extra to give a little burnt flavour to potatoes.Simple and yummy…..comfort food.

Here goes the recipe….


2 Potatoes,washed,peeled and sliced thinly.

2 tbsp Oil.

1/2 tsp Mustard seeds.

1/2 tsp Jeera.

1/8 tsp Asfoetida.

1 tsp Red Chilli powder.

1/2 tsp Haldi powder.

Salt to taste.


In a thick bottom pan heat oil.

Add mustard seeds,let it splatter add jeera and asafoetida.

Add sliced potatoes,salt,red chilli powder and haldi powder,mix well.

dont add water or cover the pan.

On medim heat let the pototoe cook,stir once or twice in between.

cook till potatoes turn crisp.

Remove in a serving bowl and serve with dal rice or roti.

Happy Cooking !!!
