Mezhukkuperatti is a typical Kerala dish. It is one of the main dishes during any Sadaya. There are various versions available in the net and from region to region too it varies. But here is one method of mezhukkuperatti which I have adapted to my family's taste. 

Potato - 1/2 kg
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - a few
Oil - 2 tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Red Chillies - 6 to 8 (depends upon the spicyness)
Urad dal - 1 tbsp
Bengal gram dal - 1 tbsp

Pressure cook potatoes, peel and dice into big cubes. Dry grind red chilly urad dal and bengal gram dal into coarse powder. 

Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds and when it splutters add the turmeric powder, salt and the ground powder, saute well and add the potato cubes mix well so that all the cubes are coated well. Add the remaining oil and mix well again. Chop the curry leaves and add it on top and cover with a lid so that the flavour settles in the vegetable. 

Serve with hot rice, sambar or rasam.
