Spiced Potatoes

Spiced Potatoes
To tell the truth this recipe belongs to my son:) That's right my 5 year old son. I don't know where he got the idea and potatoes are his favorite. I haven't being making them for sometime. He was complaining to his dad that I'm only preparing food that he and his sister like. Well he's the tendency to ask for weird combination recipe like add blueberries to chicken or chocolate ect. Just to make him quite for some day I decide to prepare his potatoes stir fry. that's when he pulled up a chair next to me and gave me this recipe which I prepare according to my way:)

1 cup peeled and cubed potatoes
1tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 cup chopped onions
1tbsp tomato paste
1tsp curry powder
1/2tsp turmeric powder
1/2tsp white pepper powder
1/4tsp garam masala
1/2tsp cumin seeds
1/2tsp mustard seeds
1/2tsp ural dal
1tsp lime juice
few curry leaves
chopped coriander leaves
salt to taste

Preparation Methods:

First add some of the tumeric powder to pototes and lime juice. Set aside for sometime then heat the oil in a large saucepan, add the potatoes, onion, ginger garlic paste and shallow fry them over a medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring from time to time, until softened and golden brown .Remove and keep aside. In the same pan add 1tsp oil sputter mustard seeds,cumin seeds, ural dal and curry leaves. Add the tomatoes paste and all the remaining spice powder.Saute till the raw smell are removed.Add the potatoes mixture and saute them well to get coated in the spice paste. Adjust the level of salt and remove from flame-transfer to serving platter garnished with chopped coriander leaves.
