This quick potato fry is my kids favorite curry. They will even eat a meal that is not to their taste if there this curry on the table. Yes, it is fried, but for kids ,its ok to have once in a while right!

I pack this with curd rice / pulao / tamarind rice in their lunch box. It also doubles as a second curry on the table but other curry has to be one non-potato and non fried vegetable!

Sometimes the kids have it as a snack too.As and when a batch is ready, they will sneak out with the bowl and come back in two minutes for a refill!!


This quick curry is the Blogging Marathon # 74, Week 1, Day 1 where my theme is Quick and delicious Stir fries.

This curry is delicious and it does get done fast and its my kids fav too!
