Batate Phodi - Potatoes coated with Semolina and Tawa Fried

I can eat any number of these any given time... They take long time to be made as they are slow cooked on tawa but they disappear in no time. This is one of my comfort foods when served with Rice and Dal, even on its own straight off the hot tawa. My Bong family opine that this can't be had as a side with Rice. But we amchis like anything fried with Rawa coat!

Potatoes - 2, sliced
Turmeric powder - a tsp
Red chilli powder - as per taste (optional)
Asafoetida powder- a pinch
Salt - to taste
Rawa / Suji / Semolina - required to coat the potato slices
Oil - 2-3 tbsp

1. Marinate the potatoes with turmeric powder, red chilli powder, asafoetida and salt.

2. Coat the potato slices with rawa and place on hot tawa. (on low flame)
3. Drizzle oil all over and cover with lid.
4. After 3-4 mins, invert all the potato slices and drizzle little more oil.
5. Remove from tawa when the slices are cooked.
