Tempered Spicy Potatoes

Tempered Spicy Potatoes

This potato dish is made very often in Sri Lankan households and it's one of my favourites. The authentic Sri Lankan tempered potatoes are not deep fried, but tempered with a little oil. Deep frying the potatoes adds more flavour to the dish. If you prefer the authentic way you can skip the deep frying. I made the vegetarian version of tempered potatoes . The original version has pounded Maldive fish which is a staple in Sri Lankan cuisine.These tempered potatoes can be eaten with rice, bread , string hopper, Sri Lankan hoppers and roti. This dish is very spicy so please adjust to suit your spice level.
