Fried Potato/Batata Bhajun Upkari

My husband's all time favorite. Most of the time he prepares this upkari at our home and I must say he is a good cook, probably better than me :). I am not a potato lover but like this simple fry with dalitoy and rice. Easy to prepare and tasty to eat.

3 large potatoes
1/4 cup cooking oil
5 red chillies
1/4 tea spoon mustard seeds
5 curry leaves
1 table spoon salt

Cut potatoes into desired shapes, sprinkle salt and leave it for 30 mins.
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds, curry leaves, red chillies.
When it starts spluttering add potatoes. Drain the salty water from potatoes before adding it.
Keep frying this on simmer until potatoes are cooked.
Serve hot with rice and dal.

Serves: 2
Preparation Time: 45 mins

Note: While frying add salt only if required.
