Wash the rice flakes and drain it for half an hour. Cut the potato as small triangle or cubed.

Heat oil in a kadai and add mustard seed to splutter.

Then add cumin seeds,greenchilies,curryleaves,turmeric powder and potato .

Leave the potato till tender then add the riceflakes and mix it up and cover with a lid. Simmer the stove for 2-3 mins . Add salt, sugarand lemon juice according to your taste.
