Potato fry...

I was away from the blogging world yesterday. I thot i will stay away from it to finish off some long pending household chores.. Now you have guessed it right.. Yeah, I am a procrastinator..Besides, i was deeply engrossed in the book i was reading after a long reading hiatus. I was an avid reader long back. After that, maybe due to one reason or the other, i couldnt finish any single book i started reading and i was missing all the thrill, all the imaginery new worlds that opens up with reading. Thanks to Stephanie Meyers and her New-york times best seller "Twilight" for bringing them back to me. Maybe thats what i needed, a vampire romance novel. I finally finished a book after a long break. The novel has also been adapted to a movie. The next item in my to-do list is watch the movie and get hold of her second novel in the series "New Moon". Meanwhile i am waiting for the next novel i have ordered "Veil of Roses" by Laura Fitzgerald.
Coming to the recipe of the day, an easy to cook, less effort and tasty dish, Potato fry...
Ingredients You Need:
3 Medium size Potatoes
Red Chilli powder - 1 1/4 tsp
Salt - to taste
Oil - 1 tblspoon
Preparation:
  • Peel the skin of the potatoes using a peeler and cut the potatoes into small cubes.
  • In a wok, add the oil and heat.
  • When the oil is hot enuf, put the potatoes and stir well so that all cubes get well coated with the oil.
  • Now add the red chilly powder and salt and stir well.
  • Once the potato cubes are well coated with the salt and chilly powder, u can close the wok with a lid and cook it covered on very low flame till the potatoes becomes tender and soft.
  • No need to add any water. But you have to stir in between so that the potatoes wont get burned or stick to the bottom.

You can have it with rice. Rice, hot rasam and this potato fry is great combo!! I love it...
