I hated potatoes as a child and my Kids?....They just adore it.... anything with potato is a big hit at home and my son wants either potato mezhukkupuratty or potato thoran with his rice everyday!!!! Here is my recipe
Potatoes: 2 medium cut lengthwise like for french fries
Green Chillies: 3 slit
Mustard: 1/2 tsp
Dried red chillies: 2
Onion: 1 small chopped fine
Turmeric: 1/4 tsp
Oil and Salt: as needed
Coconut grated: 1 cup
Heat oil in a pan and splutter mustard and dried chillies.
Throw in the onions, add turmeric and salt and saute for a minute on low flame.
Now add the sliced potatoes, saute again on a low flame.
Now add the coconut grated and mix everything properly, keep the lid and let it cook on a low flame.
When the potatoes are cooked (it should be just cooked, do not mash it), turn off stove and serve with rice.
