An easy, spicy and tasty potato pepper fry with all the spice to turn up the heat in this recipe. Once we tried this for snack and from then hooked to the recipe and making it often in place of the regular potato curry. This is so much easier than the regular one, coz no need to wait for the potato fry to get roasted. This is just matter of tossing few ingredients together. Garlic and chilli are always great combo, that too with potato, it just turns to be a hit. We like it super hot and spicy. Adjust the spice according to your level and this will be your favorite too. I like small potato's texture in this recipe than our regular potato, but still you can use regular potato. I have used sesame oil so that the spiciness doesn't affect your tummy.
