Garlic Potato Fry

October 13, 2016 Dry SabjiPotato Recipes  6 comments

I always try to make some variations in making potato fry. This Garlic Potato Fry is yet another simple and lip-smacking, spicy fry. I actually wanted to make this with baby potatoes, but unfortunately the baby potatoes that I got where oversized. So had to make it as normal one. This goes well with rice or roti. With simple ingredients that are usually available in the pantry, this Garlic Potato Fry can be made in a jiffy.

Now to the recipe..

  1. U can saute finely chopped onions along with the crushed garlic.
  2. Garlic is the hero of this recipe, so do not skip or reduce the amount of garlic.
  3. Adding the spice powders to the oil gives a unique taste.
