Lemon sized Jaggary
Salt to taste

Remove the outer skin of Chinese potatoes and chop them into medium sized thin pieces as shown in the picture below. Wash the chopped Chinese potatoes in water for 2-3 times.

Put the chopped Chinese potatoes in a pressure cooker. Add turmeric powder, chilly powder, jaggary, salt, required amount of water and cook them well(3-4 whistles).

Once the pressure goes off, keep the palya in medium flame. Once the water content is almost dried, add grated coconut and keep the palya in low flame for about 2-3 mins.

Put black gram seeds, mustard seeds, broken red chillies and oil in a pan. Once it starts spluttering, add curry leaves and add it to palya. Mix well before serving. It goes well with rice.
