South Indian Potato Podimas – Tamil style Urulai Kizhangu Podimas recipe.

Potato Podimas is a very easy side dish that you can make for lunch. This is a no fuss recipe with really simple ingredients. This is my moms recipe and she always says that lots of onions is the secret to a good podimas. Here is how to do it.

Cook Potatoes
Wash and clean the potatoes and set aside. Cut the potatoes into two and steam the potatoes with 3 cups of water in a pressure cooker for exactly 3 whistles. Remove from heat and wait for the pressure to settle naturally. Peel the potatoes and dice the potatoes into big chunks. Set aside.
