Potato Bhujiya

This is an Oriya dish that I learnt from my neighboring aunty who is a great cook. The usage of mustard is unique to Orissa, Andhra and Bengal cuisine. The masala that they prepare for this is used to fry drumstick too.


  • 2 big potatoes

To grind

  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 1 ½ tsp of cumin seeds
  • 2 dry red chilles
  • ¼ turmeric
  • salt
  • Oil


Peel the potato and slice into medium sized round pieces. Now half cook them in hot water by adding a pinch of salt.

Soak mustard, cuminseeds, chilles, turmeric and salt in water for ½ hour and grind them to a fine paste by adding sufficient water.

Heat a pan or a tava, heat oil, dip the potatoes in the ground paste and shallow fry the potatoes on both sides until light brown.

Serve hot.

Bindu, the recipe sounds good. It is really hot here, and the potatoes sprout quickly in the pantry. I am trying to use a couple of potatoes everyday so I won't be wasting them. Will try your recipe.
