Batatyaachya Kaachryaa is a simple potato vegetable from Maharashtra. The Marathi name Kaachryaa, implies a stir fry potato (Bataata) preparation which is made slightly crisp. The preparation is fuss free, without the use of any spice powders except turmeric.

Though this vegetable might look very simple, but that itself makes it all the more delicious. A good and healthy alternative to deep fried fries, this vegetable can seriously curb such cravings.

These kaachryaa taste absolutely delicious when teamed with some fresh hot phulkas! This has been one of my most favourite vegetables for tiffins when in school and even later! And, I still love it a lot!
