Alu Bhaja

Red Potato - 2 medium sized or Japanese Yam - 1 big
Chilli Powder - 1/2 tsp
Peanut Oil - 1 tbsp

Wash the potato and leave the skin on. Cut them into thin strips. Take a large pan full of water and put around 2 tsp salt in it. Soak the potato strips in the salted water for atleast 30 minutes. Then drain the water and keep the strips aside.

Take a cast iron skillet and heat the peanut oil well on medium high heat. Once the oil is heated enough, add the potato strips and chilli powder. Toss well and cook stirring occasionally till the potato gets slightly browned and crispy. Check seasoning. Additional salt may not be required as the potato was soaked in salt water.

Remove on a paper towel to soak excess oil. Serve with mushurir dal and steamed rice.
