Mushroom Potato Fry / Kalan Urulai fry (Indian Style)

mushroom potato fry

Mushroom potato fry is a simple and tasty vegetarian side dish. I used baby bella mushroom and yellow potato in this stir fry. You can use any variety of mushroom and potato available in your market. This easy mushroom potato fry is one of my favourite side dish and it goes very well with sambar rice / rasam / curd rice or any variety rice. I served this Kalan Urulai fry with lemon rice, a wonderful combo. These mushrooms stir fry not only goes well with rice but can be served with chapathi too.
