Peppered Potatoes

The past few days have been peppered with work meetings and I've been trying to catch a breather in between so I can post something. Since time is a bit tight at the moment, I decided on these Peppered Potatoes which is a very simple side.

My mother made these and I absolutely loved them since it was quite different from the usual potato fry and was a great combination with curd rice though I have been known to eat bowlfuls of these just by themselves.

PEPPERED POTATOES


Ingredients

Potatoes - 2 med. sized (well scrubbed since we are not going to peel)
Oil - 2 to 3 tsp
Salt and Pepper to taste


Method

1. Cut Potatoes into small, rather tiny cubes (half an inch maximum)
2. Heat oil, add the potatoes and saute until the oil coats the potatoes.
3. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste, mix well and keep them on medium heat, tossing every once in a while until the potatoes get cooked and are slightly browned on the outside.
