Garlic Fried Potatoes

Updated on September 24, 2017

Garlic Fried Potatoes

Just like how my mom cooked them.

They taste very different from French fries or any other type of fried potatoes. Fried Potatoes with Garlic and Green Chillies taste somewhat like fried fish. Or even better. On an average fried potatoes are everybody’s favorite. They occupy a large space in children’s school tiffin boxes, and also in office lunch boxes. We never tire of eating them. They are easy to cook and their cooking time is also very less. So enjoy Garlic Fried Potatoes ..... cooked with a new twist ..... just like how my mom cooked it .....

Serves 4 persons


Large sized Potatoes : ½ kg

Green Chilles : 4

Garlic paste : 1 tbspn

Red Chilli powder : 1 heaped tspn

Turmeric powder : ½ tspn

Fenugreek seeds : ½ tspn

Cumin seeds : 1 tspn

Oil for frying : 4 tbspn

Salt : to taste

Green Coriander leaves : 1 tbspn

Method :

Peel the potatoes and cut them into round slices. Wash them. Cut green chillies in two halves.

Heat oil in a non - stick frying pan. Add fenugreek and cumin seeds. When they splutter, add potatoes, green chillies and garlic paste. Add red chilli powder, turmeric powder and salt.

Turn and mix well with a spatula. Cover the pan and cook over low flame. Continue turning the potatoes with a spatula occasionally until they get cooked.

Cook further over a slightly high flame and uncovered for a while till they get a crispy and slight brown crust. Remove pan from fire and remove extra oil from the fries. Spread out paper napkins on a plate and put the fried potatoes on the napkins. This will remove the extra oil from the fries.

Garnish with green coriander leaves. Serve hot with roti or bread.

      These sound tasty with all of the spices and flavorings. The only thing of which I am not familiar is the fenugreek seeds. Will have to get some and try them. Thanks for your recipe. Voted useful and interesting.
