Is there anyone around who hates potatoes? I always try to avoid this vegetable because of the carbohydrate content. The main reason, we consume lots of rice in our diet!
My son loves the potatoes in any form, boiled, baked, mashed, whenever I am making a curry: he asks me if it is potato curry? This weekend, I made his favorite curd rice and the potato sukka . A dry version of potato curry, which goes well with Sambar, rasam rice, or curd rice.
Potatoes: 4 medium sizes
Oil: 1 or 2 tsp
Chilli powder: 1 or 2 tsp
Turmeric: a pinch
Salt: as per ur taste
Fennel: 1 tsp Grinded coarsely
Garlic: 5 pods crushed slightly with the skin
Onion: 1 sliced lengthwise
Curry leaves: 4 to 5 leaves
1. Boil the potatoes, peel it and cut it into cubes
2. Add all the ingredients except oil and sprinkle little water to coat the dry mixture
3. Heat a pan with oil; drop the dry mixture of potatoes and shallow fry in medium heat.
4. The sukka should be ready when it starts to turn brown.
It is a pretty easy to make and very aromatic dish (with fennel and garlic). My aromatic flavor should reach two potatoes events.

Hope u enjoy my simple curry!
