Batate Kachrya

Batatyachya kachrya
Batate Talasaan with coconut and green chillies is one of my favorite potato recipes, especially when my Mom cooks it.  Today's recipe is a similar potato stir fry which in Marathi is called as Batatyachya Kachrya, shared by a dear friend Kavita.

Potatoes - 4 medium
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Red Chilli Powder/Cayenne pepper - 1 tsp
Turmeric/Haldi - 1/4 tsp
Asafoetida/Hing - 1/4 tsp
Oil - 2 tbsp

How to cook Batate Kachrya:
  • Peel the potato skin and dice the potatoes to thin slices.  To avoid potatoes turning dark, put the slices in water.  I used Russet potatoes.
  • Heat about 2 tbsp oil in a pan and add mustard seeds, asafoetida.
  • After mustard seeds pop, add potato slices and saute till golden brown or till cooked.  Add Cayenne pepper, salt, turmeric and mix well.  You can add a pinch of garam masala as well.
  • Saute for 5 more min and its ready to serve with puri or chapati.
