Potato Fry(Microwave Oven Method)

This is a simple potato fry with the freshly ground masala powder which tastes excellent with simple rasam rice.My mom makes this fry with raw banana on fasting days such as Puratasi Saturday,Pongal,since the powder is freshly made.As I rarely get the Indian variety of raw banana here,made it with the potato in the microwave oven and here is the recipe.....

                              Bake the potato in the microwave oven and peel the skin and cut into cubes.
  • Dry roast the ingredients in a microwave safe bowl till the aroma comes.Cool and grind it in a blender or mortar to a coarse powder,keep aside.
  • In a wide microwave safe bowl heat the oil,crackle the cumin seeds,asafoetida and curry leaves.Keep it in the microwave for a minute.Now add the cubed potato,salt and turmeric powder,sprinkle a tsp of water and mix it gently and cook in for 3-4 minutes.Stir in between.
  • Sprinkle the spice powder,gram flour to the potato and mix well so that the powder coats evenly to the potato pieces.Cook it for a 6-7 minutes with in between stirring.

  • Simple potato fry is ready to serve.
Enjoy..............................


  • If you are using garlic,add it along with the cumin seeds.
  • I used 2nos. of Kashmiri red chilly and 2nos. of regular red chilly to get a nice red color.
