Sabsige- Batate Upkari (Dill- Potato Stir Fry)

Sabsige- Batate Upkari is a very simple dill flavored potato stir fry. I got this recipe from a good friend. Dill gives a wonderful flavor to this stir fry. After eating this, I found that dill and potatoes go along very well. 

  • Potatoes (big sized)- 3
  • Sabsige/ Dill leaves- Few sprigs
  • 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. Put it in a bowl containing water (to avoid from blackening). 

Wash and chop the dill leaves finely (the amount of dill to be added is left to one's choice).

Now heat oil in a pan and once it gets heated add mustard seeds. When it starts spluttering, add chilli powder and chopped (drained) potato pieces. Mix well and add salt. Fry for five minutes.

Heat should be on medium or lesser than that (No water is added to this dish. Hence more oil is added. Those who prefer less oil can reduce it and add water). Now add the chopped dill leaves.

The potatoes might take 15-20 minutes to cook (time taken depends on the potato as well as the shape). Add more salt and chilli powder, if required. Sabsige- Batate Upkari is ready!!

Serve it hot along with rice and dal. Above measurement serves three people.
