Uzhala Kizhangu Podimas (spiced Mashed Potato Stir Fry)
Podimas is a common term I came across in my IIT Madras life. It meant something mashed or jumbled spiced up. Usually we have egg podimas which was scrambled eggs with lots of onion. But for lunch every Monday we were some form of potato for lunch. I loved podimas of the lot because it was mildly spiced. Mostly white not even a trace of turmeric to corrupt this curry. I would often add a dash of ghee on top of this curry and have it with rice and buttermilk. So out of nostalgia I tried podimas today to treat my hubby to a favourite of my hostel days. Hope you like it too. There are versions of podimas that adds turmeric powder.
