Koorka Mezhukupuratti / Chinese Potato stir fry

Straight into the recipe of this delicious side dish. The chinese potatoes or koorka tastes the best with beef (Beef um Koorkayum olarthiyathu). I didn't have beef in stock, so had to find comfort in this mezhukupuratti.


Koorka / chinese potato - 2 cups (washed, cleaned and cut)
Small onions - 5-6
Garlic - 3 cloves big
Chilly powder - 2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt - as per taste
Coconut oil - 2 tbsp
Curry leaves - 1 sprig


Boil the cleaned and cut koorka with enough water, salt and turmeric powder. Cook till its done and then take it off the stove and drain water. Keep it aside.

Crush small onion and garlic using mortar and pestle. Add oil to a kadai. When hot, add the crushed onions and garlic and curry leaves too. Saute well, till they are almost crisp. Now add chilly powder, saute till the raw smell is gone. Now add the cooked koorka into this and mix it well with the masala. Let it be on stove for couple of minutes. Then switch off the stove and serve with steaming kuthari tastes yum!!
