10 Minute U.K. (urulai-kizhangu)/ Potato Roast

Written By FewMinute Wonders on Wednesday, April 30, 2008 | 9:35 PM

Breakfast food is very popular in my family. Whenever we have people over for breakfast my nephew who calls himself Potatoraja demands that I have his favorite U.K (Urulai-Kizhangu in Tamil) or Potato on the menu. To make him very happy I always come up with new ways to serve potato. I had no doubt but to send in my entry of Spicy Potato Crunch also known in the south as U.K roast to WBB-Microwave Food Announcement hosted by Easycrafts.

As an experiment I made a batch on the microwave and another on the stove top. It took me 10 minutes to do both from start to finish, but the end product was different. The stove top needed more oil but was moist and roasted but not crunchy, while the microwaved potato used very little oil and was very very crunchy. The best for a person on a low fat diet minus the cheese.
