Ingredients

Scale

For Boiling Potatoes

  • 500 grams potatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Spices and flavoring

  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 45 cloves garlic, crushed with skin

For tempering

  • 5 teaspoon peanut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 3 sprigs curry leaves

Instructions

  1. Take half a liter of water and add in the baking soda and salt. Add in the half cut potatoes to the cooker. I boil my potatoes in a pressure cooker for 2 whistles and wait for the pressure to settle naturally.
  2. Remove the skin of the potatoes and cut in big chunks. Add the chunks to a bowl. Add in freshly ground black pepper, salt and crushed whole garlic with the skin on. Toss to coat.
  3. Heat oil in a pan until hot. Add in the mustard seeds and curry leaves. Let the mustard seeds splutter.
  4. Add in the potatoes and toss on medium flame for about 10-12 minutes.
  5. Serve hot with rice, rasam or sambar.
