You can make the Potato Fry either by cooking it in microwave or even in a pan. The microwave method is far more simpler, crunchy and much tastier than cooking it in a pan.
Here goes the recipe for Potato Fry in a microwave…
Potatoes – 3
Red Chilli powder – 1 tsp
Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp
Jeera / cumin seed powder – 1/2 tsp
Salt – as per taste
Oil – 2 tbsp
Mustard Seeds – 1 tbsp
Urad dal – 1 tsp
Curry leaves – few – chopped finely
Wash and peel the potatoes.
Cut them into thin pieces lengthwise. (as shown in the picture below). Soak them in cold water so as to prevent them from turning brown.
Add the chopped potatoes in a microwave safe dish.
In a tempering pan / skillet, heat oil. Add mustard seeds and urad dal. Saute till done.
Add the tempering and curry leaves to the chopped potatoes. Mix well.
Now add the spices (chilli powder, turmeric powder, jeera powder) and salt. Give it a good mix.
On a high power, microwave for 10 minutes stirring every 3 minutes to make sure it cooks evenly.
You can increase the cook time if you want much crispier fries 🙂
Depending on different microwaves the cook time might vary.

Serve them hot with some rice and dal. Definitely a comforting mouthwatering side dish with the dal 🙂
