koorkal / koorka upprei / Stir Fried Chinese Potatoes


Koorka / koorkal/ Chinese potatoes -  1/2 kg, cut into strips.
Onion - 1/2 chopped or shallots 10.
Green chilly -  3, slit. or Red chilly powder-1/2 tsp
Garlic - 4 pods
Turmeric powder -  a pinch.
Curry leaves - few
Salt - to taste
Water- 1/2 cup or to cover koorakal
Coconut oil as needed or about 3 to 4 tbsp.


Soak koorkal in water for some time. Scrape the skin, clean and cut into strips.


Put this in a Pressure cooker along with the  salt, turmeric, and water. Cover and pressure cook for two whistles. Keep less water so that that you need not throw away the water. If there is excess water, dry the water. Don't discard.

In another kadai heat coconut oil, add Crushed garlic and saute. Add onion or shallots, green chilly/ red chilly powder, curry leaves and saute.Put the cooked koorka into this and saute for sometime on very low flame.And again saute for another 15 to 20 minutes on very low flame....slow frying is the idea here...can drizzle more coconut oil if needed.
Koorkal Upperi ready...:)
