Cooked Potato Fry [Madras Style]

This is a very special dish that I learnt from one of our family friends who stay in Chennai. We liked it so much that the same day I learnt how to prepare it. The ingredients are very few, but cooking time is lengthy. But the wait is worth as the outcome is so tasty..



4-5 Medium sized Potatoes
1 ½ tsp Chilly powder
1 tsp Coriander/Dhaniya powder
Little turmeric powder
1 tsp Jeera/Cumin
Cooking oil


  • Cook potatoes in water. Allow them to cool. Now peel the skin and mash them.
  • Add salt, chilly powder, dhaniya powder, turmeric powder and mix well.
  • Heat 6-8 tsp of oil in a non stick pan. Add jeera, allow it to splutter.
  • Now add mashed potato mix. Cook well on low flame till the potatoes turn crispy and light brownish in color.
  • Keep stirring in between to avoid burning for 15-20 mins.
  • Serve spicy potato fry with rice & sambar. I’m sure you will love it.
