Potato Thoran


Sometimes when I don't have any veggies in stock for a thoran (kerala style stir fry with coconut), I make this one. Potatoes are almost always available in any kitchen and this is a quick one when you need a side dish for rice. You may use black pepper or green chillies.

Ingredients:

Potatoes - 2 large, peeled and cubed
Oil - 1 to 2 tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Shallots - 3 or 4, peeled and sliced thin
Curry leaves - a sprig

To crush coarsely
Shredded Coconut - 1/4 cup
Jeera/cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Whole black peppercorns - 1 tsp (adjust to suit your taste)
Garlic - 1 or 2 cloves
Salt to taste

Preparation:

1. Steam cook the potato cubes till 3/4th done(or boil it).
2. Heat oil in a pan and splutter mustard seeds. Add shallots and curry leaves and fry till shallots turn brown.
3. Crush together the ingredients given above. You may give it a pulse in a mixer/food processor. Add this mix and the potato cubes and combine well and fry well till all the ingredients are combined well.
