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.

dont add water or cover the pan.
On medim heat let the pototoe cook,stir once or twice in between.
