Any potato lovers out there looking for a variation of their favorite Alu Fry/ Potato Fry? Here is one. A mint flavored potato fry. My sister, Jaya casually mentioned this to me and asked me to give it a try as she knew her jiju is a big Potato fan :) The kids also loved the variation and its a happy meal time.

Minty Potato Fry

Ingredients - 

Potatoes , Peeled and Cubed 3-4 cups
Salt as per taste
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Fresh mint leaves, finely chopped 2 Tbsp or Dry Mint Powder 1-2 tsp
Red Chilli powder to taste
Oil 1 Tbsp (I am conservative here!)

Method Of Preparation -

In a microwave safe bowl, add about 1/4 cup of water and the cubed potatoes. Nuke them for about 3-4 min (half boil them). [This is optional and traditional alu fry lovers might scorn at this :)]

Drain the water and in a non-stick pan, heat the oil and add turmeric and the half boiled potatoes.

Keep shuffling the potatoes by shaking the pan instead of with a ladle.

After about 15 min or so they would become crispy and brown too.

Now is the time to add the red chili powder, mint and salt. Mix well and remove from fire.
