Potato Onion Fry or Potato Roast

Hi all,

Sorry for being so irregular in posting recipes. This lockdown has doubled my work.. My son is keeping me on my toes.. He wants my attention all the time.. 😁 So even I am enjoying this quality time with family. I will try and post more regularly from now..

I am going to share a very quick, yummy and simple potato side dish recipe which will go well with both south indian dishes like rice, sambar or rasam.. or even with chapathis.. it can even be used with dosa to make masala dosa..

So let’s get started.



Potatoes – 5 medium size

Onions – 2 sliced

Mustard seeds – 1 tsp

Urad dal – 1 tsp

Chilly powder – 1 tsp

Dhaniya powder – 1 tsp

Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp

Salt as per taste


Boil potatoes in a pressure cooker and Cook for 2 whistles. Peel the skin of potatoes.. chop it into cubes and keep it aside.


Take a kadai and add 2 tablespoon oil. Once oil is hot add mustard.. Once it starts spluttering, add urad dal and roast for a minute.. once it turns golden brown add onions and fry till they turn translucent..

Now add the boiled and chopped potatoes.. Add chilly powder, turmeric powder, dhaniya powder and required salt.. mix everything well so that the masala get coated well on the potatoes..

Now keep the flame in low and let it roast.. add a tsp of oil around the potatoes… Give a mix after every 10 minutes.. after 30 minutes it will be completely roasted..

Serve it hot with rice and sambar/rasam or as a side dish for dosa..
