Potato Curry Recipe - Chettinad Potato Fry - Spicy Potato Fry with freshly grinded spices - Side dish

Since Potato is not our family favourite (surprisingly even my kids are not big fan of potato) I seldom do Potato fry. I normally do Potato fry to go with fried rice esp with burnt garlic fried rice or Chinese fried rice or simply I run out of vegetables. I have posted couple of version before simple Potato fry / baby potato fry. Last time when I was attending a function back in India they served Spicy chettinad baby potato fry. I kind of like it. I noted down the recipe from the host. After 6 months I am able to try it out...
