Babypotato fry

This is another of the vepudus we make. Potato fry or bangaladumpa vepudu is a common man’s special dish in Andhra. Baby potato fry is not a conventional recipe. It is today’s recipe. Simple and equally tasty, it is completely different from the normal potato fry.

Baby potatoes are the smallest sized potatoes and are commonly available now days in the market.

preparation time: 15-20 mins.

Serves 2


Baby Potatoes Half kilo
Refined cooking oil 1 cup
Black gram (urad dal/uddipappu) 1 tsp
Curry leaves 5-8
Red chilli 1
Red chilli powder 1tsp
Salt to taste
Cumin powder(optional) 1tsp


Wash and Pressure cook the baby potatoes without peeling them for up to three whistles. Generally we put them in the cooker along with rice to make it easier.

Once done, leave the potatoes to cool and peel them.

Now take a kadai/pan and add the oil. Once oil is hot fry the baby potatoes. Please ensure that they don’t turn brown. This means fry them very light and take them into another vessel.

Now in another kadai/pan take a tsp of oil. Once hot, add the red chilli, black gram and curry leaves. Season the potatoes with this tempering and mix well so that all the potatoes absorb the seasoning.

Sprinkle a tsp of red chilli powder and cumin powder(optional). Also sprinkle salt according to taste and mix well.

Baby potato fry is done.

Baby potato fry is a good rice and Indian breads’ supplement. But it is great snack too. While serving as a snack, please add pepper instead of red chilli powder and serve just like that or with sauce/chutney.
