Batato bhajjunu Upkari (Potato Stir fry)

Batato bhajjunu Upkari is a very simple dish. In konkani, batato means potato and bhajjunu means frying. This is a very easy dish and perfect for beginners. Potato lovers will surely love it!!

  • Potatoes (big sized)- 3
  • Oil- 2-3 Tbsp
  • Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
  • Red chilli powder- 1/2 tsp (adjust according to your taste)
  • Salt- To taste

Wash and peel the potatoes. Cut it lengthwise or any other desired shape. Sprinkle little bit of salt on it and keep aside. 
Now heat oil in a pan and once it gets heated add mustard seeds. Once it starts spluttering, add chopped potatoes and red chilli powder. Mix well. 
Heat should be on medium or lesser than that (water is not added to this dish. Hence we are adding more oil. Those who prefer less oil can reduce it and add water). The potatoes might take 15 minutes to cook (time taken depends on the potato). Add more salt if required. Batato bhajjunu Upkari is ready!!

This can be served as a side dish for rice. Above measurement serves two people.
