Urulai Podithuval/Potato Stirfry

Urulai podithuval, this dish is from a TV cookery show called Anjerrai Petty under the segment called Parambariya Samayal, the host of this segment is a Brahmin woman who cooks traditional dishes both South and North India. When she cooked this podithuval for the show,after watching it i tried them the day itself for our lunch, this stir fry goes for a flavourful grounded coarse mixture of coconut,curry leaves and green chillies,This masala mixture gives a wonderful flavour to this podithuval.

A prefect side dish for both sambhar,kuzhambu and rasam rice, i simply served this easy breezy potato podithuval along with vatha kuzhambu. Trust me this combo is just out of the world and we enjoyed it thoroughly.This post goes  for the CC Challenge of the month.Sending to my own event Healthy Diet-Vegetarian Side dish guest hosted by Nandoos..
