Tawa cooked Potato roast

This special potato roast is prepared in tawa, can be done in minutes.  Just because of the fact that base of tawa is huge, potatos get evenly spread, thereby aiding in fast cooking unlike kadaai, where potato pieces line in one above another resulting in very sluggish preparation.  But one should be careful while tempering, just try to stay away as far as u can ;)

Ingredients required

For temper

  • 3 tsp of oil
  • 1/2 tsp rai/mustard seeds
  • 1/2 tsp chana dal
  • 1/2 tsp urad dal
  • Few curry leaves and one dry red chilly finely chopped
  • 1 tsp idly milaga podi/idly kara podi
  • 1/2 tsp hing/perungayam
  • 1/2 tsp jeera powder
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • Salt, as per taste
  • 1/2 cup of parboiled potatos, cut into cubes


Heat oil in tawa, add ingredients for temper one by one.  Careful while doing this step

After adding tempering, sprinkle idly milaga podi, and add potato pieces

Mix them well and cook them on moderate flame

Add in other powders, adjust salt.

Cook till done and serve hot

Hmm... it went super delecious with sambhar saadham... Do give this simple dish an quick try!!!
