Urulai Kizhangu Roast/ Spicy Aloo Roast

Potato is common vegetable which always available in domestic kitchen. Whenever I feel lost in choosing menu or do not found any vegetable in kitchen. For that moment, Potato is great solution. Lots of people think potato is full of carbohydrates and fats which increase the weight but it’s a myth. Potatoes are also essential for daily nutrition which preventing kidney stone problem and helpful in brain functioning and better skin both.

Now I have to cook something with alphabet U, so I thought to cook potatoes in south style. In south region, potatoes known by urulai kizhangu, and gives mustard seeds and curry leaves tempering. But in North side, we give only cumin tempering and call jeera aloo serve with chapatti and curd. Even you can use baby potatoes also for same recipes which look prettier. For this recipe, you have to roast the boil potatoes in tomato puree and spices. It's a very simple and tempting potato recipe.
