Chettinad Potato Fry

Hi Friends,
Chettinad cuisine is so famous for its freshly grounded masala powders .This is one such very aromatic and delicious fry from chettinad that goes well with South Indian rice platter . Freshly ground masala gives a  nice aroma and wonderful taste to this recipe. The spice touch makes this fry more addictive. I love it more spicy , but its absolutely up to your taste  to increase or decrease the spiciness .  We had shifted our house and there was no net connection , so not able to blog for a quite long time . Feeling happy to blog after a break of  couple of weeks. Thanks dear friends and readers for all your support . Now lets see how to prepare this chettinad potato fry.

Now throw in the sliced onions and add a little salt to make the onions cook faster and fry till they turn soft and transparent  and Add the turmeric powder and give a good mix.
Now add in the potatoes and required salt and mix it without breaking the potatoes.

I made this for a South Indian potluck and tripled all ingredients. It was really a hit and I got many compliments! My dish was empty before the dinner was over. Thanks for the detailed instructions and pictures.
