batato piyava upkari

                         Batato Piyava upkari means Potato and onion stir fry.This is a very simple and tasty upkari to be had with rice and dal or a good accompaniment with boiled rice porridge.
                          I learnt this from my mother.whenever the curries prepared in the afternoon are got over she prepares this quickly for the night dinner.Potato and onion compliment each other and  gives an awesome taste to the stir fry.This is a good old recipe  – simple & easy to make & very tasty!


  1. Potato – 2 nos chopped thin and lengthwise
  2. Onion – 2 chopped lengthwise
  3. Mustard – 1 tsp
  4. Redchilly – 2-3 nos
  5. Salt to taste
  6. Oil – 1 tsp


Chop Onions lengthwise and keep aside.
Wash,peel and chop the potatoes lengthwise and immerse in water  – to avoid colour change.( can retain the skin if preferred)
Heat a kadai with oil and splutter mustard in it. Add red chillies broken into two,stir for a second and add the chopped onions.Saute this for a minute or two until they turn soft.
Now remove the potatoes from the water and add it to the seasoning.Add salt and just enough water to cook the potatoes.Close lid and cook till soft.
Serve with piping hot porridge drizzled with ghee or as a side dish with rice and dalithoi.
