Potato Rice

Hello Folks, Today I am going to share a Rice variety which is so easy to prepare and would be loved by everyone in the family. It is one of the recipe from my trial and error.  First time I made this with leftover Potato fry. Now a days I boil extra potatoes for making this rice itself. My little one loves it.

I would prefer this for lazy days lunch or lunch box.  Lets see how to make it.


Boiled potato - 2-3 medium
Cooked Rice - 2 cups
Oil- 2-3 tbsp
Green chilies - 2
mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
urad dal - 1/4 tsp
fennel seeds - 1/4 tsp
bay leaves - 1
cinnamon stick -1 inch
cloves - 2-3
turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
chilli powder - 1/2 tsp (adjust as per taste)
garam masala - a pinch
curry leaves - a few


1. Keep boiled potatoes smashed with fork ready. leave some chunky pieces also.
2. In a pan heat 1 tbsp of oil and add, mustard seeds, urad dal, fennel seeds, bay leaves, cloves, green chilies and curry leaves one by one.
3. Then add partially smashed potatoes  and saute for a while, and add turmeric powder, garam masala, and saute for a minute or two.
4. Add rice , another tbsp of oil , required salt and saute well until the rice and potato mixes well.

Serve with chips, raitha or a simple veg curry.


1. Tastes best with sona masoori, ponni rice, basmathi rice etc.
2.  Can add ghee at last for best aroma.
3. I have not added coriander leaves as i was not having on that day.
4. can add cashews while tempering.
