Potato Roast in freshly grounded masala / Urulaikizhangu Varuval

Potato Varuval
Potato is basic veggie for many recipes and my all time favorite. Now Mithu's too.  This is the only vegetable most of the kids like. Variety of recipes can be tried with potato for lunch . I always see to have enough stock of potato in my veg basket .

Potato Roast
This is basic and simple recipe in my own style and easy to make.  It has no onions . I have used some freshly grounded masala  for the varuval. It goes well as an accompaniment for rice and chapatti rolls. We love to have with sambar and curd.
We had this simple and comforting  lunch with sambar, varuval and rice.
