Spicy Potato Fry

A spicy south Indian side dish

1. Fresh golden potatoes 2 lbs ( peel and cut to uniform shape of your choice; put it in water)
2. White onion 1 lb ( peel and cut into log thin wedges )
3. Ginger – finely chopped – 2 tsp
4. Fresh coriander leaves chopped 2 tsp
5. Sambar Powder 2 tsp ( Available at Indian grocery stores)

Heat 3 tsp of your favorite cooking oil in a large heavy pan or skillet, add chopped ginger and onion and fry over low heat, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes.

Take the cut potato out of water and add them to the skillet and add salt as needed and cook over low heat; keep skillet covered.

When the potato is tender add the 2 tsp Sambar powder and sauté; if you wish you can add another 2 or 3 tsp oil as well. Stir well.

If you like it spicier, add more Sambar powder.

Garnish potato fry with chopped coriander leaves. Serve with rice or choice of tortilla.
