Potato Podimas (Aloo Podimas)


I was planning to make chappathi for dinner and needed a side dish to go with. It's been a while since I made potato podimas. Potato podimas is a South Indian dish. My mom used to make it with chappathi and puri. I found this recipe in the blog Shanthi Krishnakumar's cookbook which is very similar to my mom's recipe. The difference here is that I used onions along with ginger and stir-fried chopped vegetables (carrot, green beans and peas) before adding the mashed potato. The dish came out great. The leaves and the two acorns in the picture has nothing to do with the dish. My four-year-old brought it from outside as a 'surprise' for me while I was taking the photo. I think the word 'surprise' has a different meaning in his dictionary.
