  1. Awesome. Tried it with dal rasam and it was a perfect meal . Making it again today

    Thank you for the delicious recipes. Glad I found this blog!!

  2. Thank you dassana for your great way of explaining the recipes. I just keep on trying them. Will love to share with you more details. As m running short of time as my hubby is about to come from office and I am preparing to serve him your delicious recipes…..
    Thanks again. Great to hear from you.

  3. This recipe turned out very tasty. I have done this several times before, but the spice proportions given in this made it really good. I added some urad dal and chopped garlic before adding the tadka, since that is how my mom makes it.

    If i microwave cut potato pieces, will it still taste the same ?

  4. Hi! While your recipes + photography aspects are great and I keep coming back for ideas here; it looks like in the name of SEO you have a lot of spammy presence that keeps redirecting to some random page. Now that, is not cool.

    • apeksha, thanks for your feedback. the redirect is happening because of some issue we are checking. its happening with many sites. could be phone related issue and not website specific.

  5. thanks so much dasanna. i tried this recipe today. its really fantastic my grandma appreciate to me. its my fabulous day this is first time i cook thanks so much dassana.

  6. Hey dassana,
    I am a novice at cooking, I had some people over for lunch today and tried some of the recipes from your blogs. this one in particular turned out to be gr8.. thank u sooo much your blog is amazing and a life saviour.

  7. We tried this last night, but didn’t have sambar, asafoetida, or the curry leaves. We cut the potatoes first and boiled them until they were almost done. Then we drained them and cooked them in our karahi wok pot. We left the skin on too, which is where there are some nutrients. Also, I forgot to add the salt during the cooking, but we added some at the table to taste. It was very tasty, easy to make, and we’ll definitely be making it again. Both my wife and son really liked the potatoes, which means we get to have them again!

    • thanks joe’s dad. the peels can be left and they give a good texture too. the sambar powder, asafoetida and curry leaves will give a south indian taste. but even without them the potatoes would taste good. since you would be making this way, i would suggest to sprinkle some lemon juice while serving. gives a good tang.

  8. I tried this today for sambar,rasam.mmmmm Its spicy.
    U get gold star rating from my daughter.
    keep posting such simple recipes.
