Bangaladumpa Vepudu ~ Potato Fry (2)

bangaladumpa-vepudu
Bangaladumpa Vepudu

Potato stir fry in all its variations never disappoints. I am especially enamored by this particular stir fry (I could eat it every day and still never get enough). A second helping is always a must with this stir fry. Any left overs (which is rare), goes as a filling in my sandwich.

The addition of onions which are caramalized provide crunch along with urad dal which is a vital ingredient in this recipe along with crushed garlic. The key is to serve it warm, when the flavor is mellow as you bite into the soft, crisp garlic-scented potato. Serve with rice and rasam OR rotis and dal.

    Hi,

    I really enjoy this site and even though I know how to cook, I use it to inspire me every day! For me, planning what to cook takes me the longest time 🙂

    Sailu, could you pls do a series on healthy pregnancy snacks or meals? I need to avoid most spices and onion and garlic. It would be great if you could post some lightly flavoured healthy options as well as combinations.

    Thank you in advance.

    thanks shailu for this nice recipe. i have observed you add methi pwd to many of your recipes, i have always wanted to keep ground methi powder handy to add to curries, but never did till now…. do i roast the methi seeds, till they are red or just lightly roasted….

    You need to roast methi/fenugreek seeds till they turn red, cool and grind to a fine pwd.
