Potato Puttu/ Crumbled Potato

This is one of those recipes that is true to the vegetable. All you taste is the potato, more like the Indian mashed potato :). It is very subtle and all the ingredients added are only there to compliment the potato and not overpower it. We often make this at home and serve it as a side dish with rice and some spicy curry.

Ingredients:

Potato – 500 gms

Onions – 2 big ones

Grated Coconut – 1/4 cup

Green chilli – 1

Salt to taste

To Temper:

Oil – 1 tbsp

Mustard – 2 tsp

Urad dal – 1 tsp

Curry leaves – few

Method: 

  1. Wash the potatoes and pressure cook them until done. Take care not to overcook them, mushy potatoes don’t taste great for this recipe. Once cooked, cool and peel them.Potato puttu 1
  2. Finely chop the onions and green chilli. Crumble the potatoes with hand. It should be soft and crumbly and not sticky.Potato puttu 2
  3. Heat oil in a pan. Once hot, add the mustard, urad dal, green chilli and curry leaves. Give a stir and add the onions. Potato puttu 3
