Potato Podimas

This is the easiest way to make potato as per me. This simple side dish is made within 15 minutes and makes a great side dish for rasam or any spicy kuzhambhu/curry and you dont have to keep stiring and wait for the potatos to turn crispy and brown.

2 large potatoes
1 medium onion chopped
3 green chillies chopped
1 inch piece ginger
2 tblsp chopped coriander leaves

1 tsp mustard
1 tsp urad dhal
1 tsp channa dhal
few curry leaves(optional)
1/2 tsp turmeric
salt as required

Boil the Potatoes in a pot or Microwave.Make sure that its not mushy.
If using a microwave -
Scrub and wash the potatoes. Pierce the potatoes all over using a fork. and then cook it for 2-3 minutes in high, or if there is potato option in microwave you can use that.
If using a pot -  boil the potatoes for about 10 mins

Cool and peel the skin and roughly scramble the potatoes.

In a non stick pan add 2 tsp of oil and when its hot add the mustard seeds.
When the mustard pops add the urad dhal and channa dhal.
Once the dhals are brown add the curry leaves, green chillies and ginger, give it a stir and then add onions.
Once the onions are translucent, add turmeric, salt and then the potatoes.
Sprinkle some water and stir well to combine. Add the chopped coriander/cilantro leaves
Reduce the heat to medium, close the pan with  the lid and cook for about 5 mins or till all the water is absorbed.
