Whenever there are guests at home or during any special occasion be it birthdays/wedding anniversary my Amma’s celeberatory Tamil lunch menu will have Chinna vengaya arachuvitta sambar (Shallots sambar) & this urulaikezhangu pattani kari (Potato peas poriyal). The best part of this poriyal is those browned slighly crunchy pieces that gets stuck to the pan.
My Notes :
There are so many ways in which you could improvise the below recipe based on your preference.
– You can add ginger garlic pieces, garam masala too and serve it as side dish with Roti
– Instead of chilli powder & coriander powder you can use just a tablespoon of Sambar Powder to add spice to the kari
– If you want you can add one capsicum & tomato while sauteing onions
