Potato-onion Roast With Garlic Rasam
Potato Roast
For any south Indian, this is a menu that can be a default menu any day and it is a meal to come salivating back home to after even a week of travel to a country/ city where Indian food is hard to find! The “comfort” food in my home is rasam with spinach – but the potato-onion roast makes it a very festive meal J
My blogger pal, Priya of Bon Appetit had asked me to post pictures on FB, but I thought this is always a happy meal for all of us and decided to blog it
potato roast
Here is the recipe
Boil, peel & dice potatoes (I always use the pink variety)
1 large pink onion chopped into thin slivers

Garlic Rasam
Preparation
Use required amount of oil splutter cumin, mustard and asafetida.
Add the onions and roast for a bit

Add the curry powder (make as spicy or bland as you desire), salt and the turmeric powder and toss the potatoes around until all of them are coated evenly.
Add a little more oil and allow it to roast.
Add washed curry leaves and mix once more before removing from stove.
It should be golden brown
