Measuring cup used 1 cup = 220 ml

When the pressure cooker settles down peel and cut them into the big cubes.

Now in a heavy bottom kadai heat oil.

Add mustard seeds and let it splutter nicely.

Now add curry leaves and whole red chilies, wait for 2 seconds.

Add ginger and garlic together (you can add ginger-garlic paste too), stir them once.

Now simmer the flame and add besan OR rice flour and sambar powder, fry for 2-3 seconds. (be careful spices should not burn)

Fry these potatoes for 10 min over medium flame.

While serving sprinkle some grated coconut.
