Tater Tots curry

Recipe Courtesy: Ramya (my sis-in-law)

Good news for all potato lovers... (like me)
Have you tried the tater tots in the potato aisle of the freezer section in your grocery shop?? Tots are shredded potatoes held together with bread crumbs and seasoning in the shape of small cylindrical balls. They are packaged just like french fries and fit for deep frying. It is available in the US.

My sister-in-law, Ramya suggested that I make potato curry with them and know what, it turned out super tasty! Especially when you are in a hurry and don't have time to boil baby potatoes, peel and saute them, tots is an awesome, super crispy alternative!

Remember to check the ingredients on the package. They are available in different flavours. You can choose the one your family likes. It is mostly available in onion flavour.

Ingredients:
1/2 pkt tater tots (the flavour you prefer)
1 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp urad dal
1 tsp red chilli powder
1/4 tsp turmeric
Salt to taste
(the potatoes are already seasoned, so add little salt to suit your taste), oil -3 tsp (or more)

Microwave the desired amount of potatoes for a minute.
Add oil in a kadai, splutter mustard seeds. Add urad dal and roast till golden.
Add the potatoes. add salt, turmeric, chilli powder.
Roast till crisp and golden on medium flame.
It is ok if a couple of them break while stirring/sauteing.
Enjoy with a lovely South Indian meal!!!
