Oh ho...the second recipe using pea nuts in this week. Can we call it as pea nut weakAs an old advertisement says in Sun TV Pea nut vaaaaaaaram..... Hm?!... This was also a long pending in my draft.

This is our favorite! who refuse to eat crunchy potatoes. come lets enjoy the twisty treat.


Potatoes ½ kg
Butter 2 tsp
and turmeric
Fried Peanut powder(coarsely powdered) 4 to 5 tsp
Chilli powder 2 tsp
Garam masala pinch Garlic 2 to 3 pods minced


Boil and peel the potatoes cut into bite-size cubes.
Add melted butter to the pot and generously sprinkle with salt and turmeric. (Place the lid on the pot and shake vigorously).
The butter and salt should combine with the potato to create a light "mash" around each potato.
Heat heavy bottomed pan and tamper with usual tapering items.
Add minced garlic, saute and add potatoes. Mix well and slowly add chili powder, peanut powder garam masala one by one.
All the powder should get coated on potatoes and should get evenly mixed.
Roast the potatoes in low flame by stirring occasionally until it become brown and crunchy,
Enjoy the roast with morkulambu, VATHAK KULAMBU, PLAIN RASAM or sambar rice.
