Koorka mezhukkupuratti (Chinese potato stir fry)

Of late, I was bitten by a health bug and was eating wise, when Loyd's b'day hit me off. Considering he likes all jaw breaking things to eat, we have been continuously feasting on some serious eats. Kozhiyum pidiyum (you can see the recipe in Mom's blog), koorka mezhukkupuratti, and definitely nammude parippu payasam were the highlights. Shocked!!!! Yeah, he likes all carb laden foods. The making of a chocolate cake was blown away at the request of b'day boy to make parippu payasam. Hey, sometimes  best of our intentions and plans go haywire. Give me a pat. I am ready to move on. So at the request of b'day boy tons of naadan cooking was done followed by loads of eating. So here goes the recipe for humble koorka mezhukkupurati.

Koorka - 1/2 kg
Green chillies - 2 nos
Pearl onions - 1/2 cup
Garlic - 3 cloves
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Curry leaves
Coconut oil


Wash and clean koorka. Pressure cook koorka along with salt and turmeric powder till one whistle. Release the pressure and keep the koorka aside.

Heat oil in a pan, crackle mustard seeds. Saute garlic, pearl onions, green chillies, and curry leaves. Add   chilli powder. Fry for a minute. Pour in the cooked koorka. Serve hot with rice.
