Tawa Potato Fry is one of the delicious and addictive versions of Potato to indulge in. While Potato fry is a regular and easy to make, making it on the tawa gives it an extra texture to the roast.
When I was deciding on the recipes for Tawa dishes, I had a tough time deciding and things got busy with me finally ending up making a simple one. However, this is one dish that's cooked at least once or twice for the kids. Both Konda and Peddu love this roast and I often make for their lunch.
While this tastes awesome when hot, it is a good dish to enjoy when it is cold as well. Do try this right away if you haven't done it already. Roasting on tawa is quite tricky as you have a limited work area. This recipe is versatile. I mostly keep it simple with just turmeric, salt and red chili powder when on a rush hour. Most times I cook it in Microwave and roast it for a quick packing. If you have time on hand, you can directly cook it completely on tawa for a very crispy potato fry.

My family loves it. This is my go-to fry on weekends but never tried it on a tawa. I always microwave the potatoes before frying-reduces frying time.
I do often prepare this on kadai, but never tried on tawa. Useful tip on microwaving them to reduce the roasting time. Looks so crispy and delicious.
This is one dish I can eat as is, Valli....don't need any accompaniment. Your roast looks so crisp and beautifully browned.

I do this tawa potato fry quite often and this potato fry makes an excellent side dish for lemon rice.

Potatoes fried on tawa are always more crisp. Liked that you microwaved them before frying. I'll try this method next time

I never tried roasting potatoes o a tawa. As Harini mentioned, I start in a microwave and finish it off in a pan. Whatever the method may be, aloo toast tastes great.
