 Alugadde Palya Recipe For Rice

After a long time I tried few Karnataka recipes in my kitchen. I prepared Karnataka style bele rasam, Raw mango gojju and Potato Palya/ alugadde palya for rice. As always, my wonderful school moms friends are the source for these recipes as well. I learnt this aloogadde palya / potato curry / urulaikizhangu poriyal recipe from my friend Archana. Usually people in Karnataka make aloogadde palya for poori or to stuff masala dosa. But this version is served as side dish for rice. So it is different from the usual ones. It can be made in a simple way just by tempering onion, green chilli. But my friend Archu told me to add little Vangibath masala powder for more flavor. So I too followed the same. It came out really well and tasty. Raksha loved it a lot. I served with Raw Mango gojju. It was so good. Friends, do try this Karnataka style alugadde palya for a change and enjoy ! Lets see how to make potato palya recipe with step by step pictures.
