Simple Potato fry

With all the running and chasing behind my little one, sometimes cooking is a real challenge for me. Especially preparing lunch during week days would be a little tough. So if I am making a last minute side dish for lunch then my first choice would be this simple potato fry. It takes no time at all to prepare this and taste great with sambhar, rasam, curd rice or lemon rice. After all who wouldn't love to cook something that taste great without any effort.

(Serves 2)

2 medium sized potatoes
1 tsp sambhar powder
1 tbsp oil
salt to taste

Wash the potatoes and cut them into thick wedges along with the skin. Heat oil in a pan. When the oil is not enough add the potatoes. Saute for 2 to 3 mins and then add the salt and sambhar powder. Sprinkle little water and mix well so that the potatoes are coated well with the spice.
Cover and cook on medium to low flame for 5 mins. Then again sprinkle some water and cook for another 10 mins stirring frequently. Serve hot as a side dish for rice.
