Potato Upperi

A simple preparation with potato, which is easy to prepare and will be a good side dish with roti or rice.


3 big - Potatoes, cut to small pieces
Salt to taste


1 tsp - Mustard seeds
2 - Dry whole red chili, split into two
2 sprigs - Curry leaves
1/2 tsp - Turmeric powder
4 big - Shallots, chopped
4 - Green chili, chopped
Coconut oil


1 ) Use a non-stick pan. Heat coconut oil, add mustard seeds and pop it. Then add curry leaves, red chili, turmeric powder and fry for few seconds. Then add green chili, onion and fry lightly. Sprinkle some salt ,this will make the onion brown faster. But for this recipe you don't have to fry the onion till it turns brown.

2 ) Add the potato pieces, stir, mix and fry for a few seconds. Now lower the heat to a low setting. Close with a tight lid and cook. Open the lid only to give a quick stir to the pieces so that it does not stick to the pan. If needed sprinkle little water and cook till the potatoes are fully cooked in its steam.

Serve hot as a side dish with roti.
