Potato Roast | Urulai Kizhangu Roast

Potato roast is the most easiest side dish you can make!! I can't think of anything that is more simpler than a potato roast! I make this quite often since my kids like eating it with curd rice. You can adjust the spice mix as per your requirements. I usually add less spice for my kids and make it more spicy for my husband.

Potato Roast

1. You can add the masalas as per your taste.
2. Add some green chillies too for more spice.
3. My anni adds some curd to this to make it slightly sour.
4. I usually divide the potatoes to 2 plates and add less masala for my kids and a lot more masala for my husband (like I've shown in the step wise pictures).
5. You can add some chopped onions too.

Until next time,
