Potato and Egg Poriyal

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, poori potato masala, and potato podimass. Then I wanted to try something different for her and that is when I tried this Potato and 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.
