Potato egg poriyal, potato egg stir-fry, potato egg fry – A tasty and delicious stir fry prepared by tossing potatoes and eggs together.
I love any dishes that have potatoes in it and will always have potatoes at home. My daughter Sanvi also loves potatoes. Right now, potato is the only vegetable that she eats….hmmm…you got it! She is a fussy eater so how can I make her eat?
I usually give her potato fry and potato podimas. Then I wanted to try something different for her and that is when I tried this potato egg poriyal recipe. Sanvi loved it and so am I. It is very simple and tastes similar to the potato masala we usually make at home. Try it out and let me know how you liked it.
