How to make Spicy Potato Roast | Urulai Varuval | Spicy Aloo Roast | Side Dish for Rice | Potato Recipes

Spicy Potato Roast / Urulai Varuval / Aloo Roast is one of the dish, which I never say no. I love anything and everything made up of potatoes. This roast is the one which I used to make it often but somehow could not click pictures and post it. This is really a spicy dish if you follow the same measurements but I feel when taken with any rasam sadam or curd rice, the spiciness is still ok.  If you want less spicy reduce the measurement as per ur taste buds. Now to the recipe of Spicy Potato Roast / Aloo Roast / Urulai Varuval.

  • Potato - 4 (medium sized)
  • Rice flour - 2 tbsp
  • Chilli power - 2 tsp 
  • Coriander powder - 1.5 tsp
  • Cumin powder - 1 tsp
  • Turmeric powder - 1/5 tsp
  • Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
  • Fennel seeds - 1/4 tsp
  • Salt - 1/2 tap or as per taste
  • Oil - 3 tsp

1. Boil the potatoes and peel off the skin. Let it cool down. Cut into cubes.

2. Add the rice flour and mix thoroughly so that potatoes are well coated with rice flour. Keep aside.
3. Mix all the powders and keep it />
4. In a vessel or kadai, add the oil. When the oil is hot add the mustard seeds, urud dal and fennel seeds. When the mustard splutters, add all mixed powders immediately and mix well. Take care not to burn the powders. So keep the flame in low and do this process.
5. Now add the rice coated potatoes to the kadai and mix it well with a spatula taking care not to break the potatoes to small pieces.
6. When the potatoes are well coated with the masala, switch off the stove and serve with rasam Sadham or curd Sadham.

1. I used Everest chilli powder and spiciness suits well for our taste buds. So you can increase or decrease the chilli powder accordingly. 
2. Do not add any water in this procedure. You should cook the potatoes well but don't make it very soft.
