Garlic infused potato fry

Garlic infused potato fry

Most of us like potatoes when it is prepared in any form. Some like to be fried and I love to have it with rasam or with curd. I wanted to insist some garlic flavor in potatoes and I asked amma for the recipe which she makes rarely. As I said, this can be taken with sambar, rasam, curd and any rice of choice.

Always use coconut oil for making this recipe. It gives very good smell for the dish. I exactly dono whether it is a mallu based dish. So I dont want to name as “kerala style”. If u feel it is a kerala based dish kindly leave ur comments.
